Khmer Bronze Buddha with Naga, Angkor Period, Style of the Bayon, 14th Century



A wonderful small Khmer cast bronze figure of the Buddha sheltered by a Naga (Buddha Muchalinda), Angkor Period, style of the Bayon, late in the period, 14th century, Cambodia. This small Khmer cast bronze sculpture is known as Buddha Muchalinda, and depicts the Buddha seated in meditation, raised upon the coils of the Naga King Muchalinda, and shelter by his seven heads and hoods which fan out behind the Buddha's head. The figure most likely originally would have been the center of a Buddhist triad grouping, with the Buddha flanked on either side by Avalokiteshvara and Prajnaparamita. The sculpture displays a gorgeous and heavy patina of blue azurite and green malachite, obscuring some of the casting details. Drilled and mounted on an acrylic stand. Measurements of figure only: 5.75 x 2.75 x 1.5 (6.5" high mounted).
