Rare Bronze Fragmented Lao 'Sakyamuni' Buddha Head, Circa: 17th Century.

Description: A magnificent museum quality 17th century fragmented Bronze 'Sakyamuni' Buddha head, originally part of a full meditating figure, recovered from a temple precinct in the central region of Lao, near the Laos and Thailand border, hand-carved and cast with distinct facial features, powerful downcast expression, and ornate formalism, measuring 7.25 inches (18.4 cm) in height, without the museum mount.
XXX Beautifully modeled in the classical 'Laotian' style, the Buddha's face is beautifully rendered with a peaceful meditative expression, heavy-lidded downcast eyes and a relatively small bow-shaped mouth with an insipid smile. Arched eyebrows meet above a prominent nose, with flared nostrils. A small hairband separates the hair from his forehead, with the head covered in elaborately executed pin-curls, surmounted by a hemispherical 'Ushnisha', which terminates into a tall stylized flame finial. The ears with elongated earlobes are striated in the upper and lower portion.
XXX The severed head remains in its original state as found, with no condition issues, beautifully modeled with detailing clearly visible. The unaltered bronze surface has naturally aged to a rich chocolate brown patina, covered in a soft overlayment of green malachite oxidation, with traces of gilded-gold pigment. The surface is slightly soil encrusted, and shows weathering consistent with age.
