BUDDHA HEAD

China
Song dynasty (960-1279)
Sandstone
H. 40 cm

 

The oval of the face has round sweet volume especially on the cheeks and the eyebrowns. The thin curled hair meet at the centre of the bun (usnisa). The lengthen eyes are half-closed. The serene glance is absorbed in meditation. Almost an icon of the buddhist Compassion and a rare example of the best Song sculpture.
