A FEMALE SANDSTONE TORSO, KOH KER
Cambodia, Khmer, village of Koh Ker, 10th century. The robust figure elegantly carved with broad shoulders and a round belly adorned with a raised and incised waistband and apron. Modern base. (2)

Condition: Extensive weathering and wear, minor dents, nicks and losses as visible on the images. Overall fine condition, especially when considering the age of this statue.
Provenance: Axel Aylwen, Bargany House, Scotland, acquired in Thailand during the 1970s. A private collector, acquired from the above in 1998. A copy of the original provenance letter, dated May 7th 1998, is accompanying this lot.

Weight: 5.5 kg.
Dimensions: Height 36.5 cm (the statue) and 43 cm (including the base)

The present example exhibits the “dynamic equilibrium” that, for Boisselier, characterizes the sculpture of Koh Ker. See J. Boisselier, Asie du Sud-Est, 1966, page 248.
