A carved wooden Buddha head and shoulders, nicely detailed with distressed paint finish.
I suspect this Buddha head was made in Nepal although it has very Indian, almost feminine, facial features. The eyes and lips are full and the nose is long and elegantly sculpted. The deeply convoluted, roseate ushnisha, or the crown of hair on top of the Buddha’s head is a superb piece of carving in it’s own right.
We also have a similar statue with a red robe.
The height of this painted Buddha statue is approx 32cm.
