Uma
Good standing bronze image of a Khmer female deity (most likely Uma) holding a lotus bud in both hands, circa 13th century- Bayon style. This is, as we say, a fixer upper. One arm and the base have cleanly broken off during transit. Rather than repair and list with possibility that this might break again being shipped, I thought it better to sell as is with buyer doing this themselves (and then try and not to move it around too much). Fixing it would be fairly straightforward by just gluing back together with metal epoxy putty or super glue. This piece has a nice patina with a lovely face and good details on the garments. Included is a custom made perspex stand, H: 13.cm/5.1in (not including stand). Reference- Heaven and Empire: Khmer Bronzes from the 9th to 15th Centuries by Marlene L. Zeffrys, Nicholas Zeffrys and Jeffrey Stone.
