Description: A Lohan head was finely carved from a buff-tinted sandstone. By a downcast gazing look, the handsome Buddhist disciple was depicted neatly on the features. The slanted eyelids, the slightly bulged eyeballs, the slender and pointed nose, and the vivid and lightly closed mouth etc. all of them were rendered in a natural and vivid way. In a plain form without any decoration, the Lohan head piece was expressed with a serene atmosphere that the traditional Buddhist sculptures would own. In an adequate size which would be an ideal piece under the lamp light, The head piece was propped by a museum-class bronze stand. Date: Northern Song Dynasty(AD960-1127). Height: 17cm, Width: 11, Depth: 12.2cm. Condition: Defects were found to the auricle of the ears and on his forehead. The rest was in quite good and original condition. Height including stand: 24cm.
