MEASUREMENTS: Height: 19 cm (7.48 inches).

CONDITION: Drilled hole in bottom of head with inserted coper tube for dowel and mounting, chipped with old repairs.

The calcified mineral deposits, strongly visible on the surface of the head, are strong and excellent indicators of the authenticity of this piece.

Since the market is flooded with reproductions of Khmer sculptures, which for inexperienced collectors look the same as the authentic artifacts, we would like to inform our clients that this is a 100% authentic antique 12h century A.D. Khmer, sandstone head of Shiva. and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

Provenance: The sculpture was acquired from a local Canadian antiques collection; the previous owner had purchased the head from an American-Miami antique dealer in the early 60s.
