Vintage Marble Buddha Head on Stand

About

Carved out of a heavy block of dark brown marble with striking white veins, this Buddha head represents the Northern Qi style in China (550-577), but we believe that it was likely carved in the 20th century as a study for classic Buddhism sculpture. The Northern Qi style is a very unique period for Chinese Buddhism iconography when the northern part of the country was influenced by the imagery exchanged via the silk road from the central Asia such as Gandhara style while maintaining a Chinese characteristic such as the egg shape of the head and ushnisha soft facial expressions with a subtle fleshy cheeks and elegantly curved eyebrows and eyelids. This marble used for this piece has very prominent white veins through out, making this piece an interesting object of art for meditation. On a custom steel and wood stand. It was from a well known collector, provenance available. Head is 9 inches in height, 14 with stand.
