Angkor Transitional Period 'Kulen' Style. Cambodia 9th C. Authentic Khmer Hardstone Fragmented Torso 'Kulen' Style & Period. 9th Century. SOLD AS PRESENTED. Description: A superb 9th century hand-carved Khmer Hardstone Male Deity Figure, Fragmented Torso, probably that of 'Shiva', stylistically and iconographically executed in traditional 'Kulen' style, from Khmer mythology. The figure is presented in its unrepaired condition as found, originally modelled from a solid single block of stone. As with images from this period, the ornamentation reflects a perfect mastery of sculpting and fluidity, appearing more formalized than previous Angkor periods. Facial features would have been square, and the weight balanced on the left leg. The scattered fragments were discovered in a rice field being cultivated by Village Farmers in northern Cambodia. The carving measures 26.50 inches (67.31cm) in height, three units combined. The fragment is masterfully modelled in realistic human form, standing in 'Samabhanga' in a strong frontal pose with both arms, legs, and head broken, wearing a short stylized sampot worn high on the hips and hung low at the waist, with the navel visible, secured by a plain belt, fashioned with neatly incised pocket folds on the left thigh, and complimented by an ornate sash on the right. Typical of Kulen style male figures, his garment is ornamented with a central panel terminating in a fish-tail design at the front and a butterfly knot at the back. XXX Originally hand chiseled from a Brownish hardstone, the fragmented portions are exquisite examples, unaltered, as found, revealing a well weathered and worn surface, with a naturally aged patina of molted variations of hues and colour throughout. The fragments are in excellent Condition, with the exception of minor surface abrasions. Severed arms and limbs are typically found in images of this type, having multiple breaks from the burial environment in which they were unearthed, which does not detract from the beauty of the piece in anyway, as displayed.
