Constructed from papier-mâché and gilt, a life-size Buddha head with serene facial features, the heavy-lidded eyes looking downward, arched brows, and slight smile indicating a meditative state, the head with the characteristic elongated ears and tightly knotted hairdo with a top bun of the Buddha, a socket at the crown of the head would have originally held a flame plume. This piece would have been part of a full-bodied statue.
Condition: Minor chips, missing six knots from the hairdo, otherwise intact and in excellent condition. Mounted on an old custom base. A lovely example.
Provenance: Private Toronto, Canada collection, acquired in the 1980s.
