Done by top-quality marble stone, a great Buddha’s head was well carved.
A typical piece of the early to mid-Tang periods, the marble head was well carved by the hands of the excellent craftsman.
The religious piece was well depicted in details: on top, the spiral ushnisa and the features of the face –the full cheek, almond eyelids and well-defined lips, all were meticulously rendered by affluent and sleek carving skills.
Due to natural cause or some historical havocs, the master piece was presented in a tragic way.
Whatsoever, the ancient religious stone deity still beamed his kindness and generosity to the people.
And still, the stone piece stands for a marvelous carving piece that have survived for more than 1000 years.
-Surely a cultural crème de la crème we would esteem.
And in the market, some defect piece still fetched high price in auction house.
