ANTIQUE BUDDHA HEAD
This splendid piece was created by a master craftsman who was also a highly skilled sculptor. The calm, compassionate effect of his sculpture expressed his understanding and interpretation of Buddhism. A Full face and thick lips are distinctively of the Tang dynasty influence while the simple, fluid lines are hallmarks of the elegant Ming dynasty. The depiction of very large ears and insightful, realistic, communicative eyes are the artist's own trademark. Stunning gilt remained intact and highly visible.
