Description
Done in the Tang style (618- 907 A.D.) this Buddha head displays fine sensitivity in the carving, with full, 'fleshy' cheeks, apricot-shaped eyes, elegant eyebrows and a sensitive mouth. The hair is fashioned in bands of coils or spirals, which seem to have an energy of their own, as if constantly in motion. This sense of movement is nicely contrasted to the lovely serenity of the face, which exudes a sense of mystery combined with a peacefulness that achieves perfect harmony. - (PF.5421)
