From the last pre-Muslim kingdom on Java, this pottery head dates to about 1400-1450. It measures 20cm high X 26cm wide or 11.5 inches X 10.25 inches. Such ceramic and stone sculptures are not well published. One small volume by H.R.A. Muller, Javanese Terracottas, illustrates both sculptures and vessels from that kingdom. This head has a fitted stand. It has various repairs, visible in the images.
