  • Antique Koh Ker Style Stone Mounted Khmer Vishnu Head - 31cm / 12"

    Measures (Height) 31cm/12"

    The power emanating from this compelling Vishnu image characterises 10th century, Koh Ker style.

    The Koh Ker period is a relatively obscure but fascinating epoch in Khmer history. Nestled in the dense forests of northern Cambodia, Koh Ker served as the capital of the Khmer Empire for a brief period during the 10th century.

    This era is marked by a remarkable architectural legacy and a glimpse into the political, cultural, and religious dynamics of the time. While overshadowed by the grandeur of Angkor, the Koh Ker period has a story of its own that deserves recognition.

    As is typical with this style the Vishnu has a soft face and high Chignon, surmounted by a lotus flower. His tiara or jatamukuta (crown of hair) is also richly decorated. A tradition that continued to develop in Cambodia from the 10th century to the post-Angkor period.

    The features of Vishnu demonstrate a prominent nose, jutting lower lip and firm chin. This is typical of the Koh Ker style. Probably an idealised portrait of King Jayavarman IV who implied that his rule was divinely sanctioned through association with both Vishnu and Shiva iconography.

    Vishnu is both world protector and preserver, restorer of moral order - he is all-powerful and all-pervasive by nature.

    The Vishnu is loose mounted on a wood base (later).

    Provenance: Ex- private Boston, US estate collection.
