Description: A remarkable, well preserved 18th century Khmer sandstone carved Temple Pillar Statue from Siem Reap province of Cambodia. A massive specimen, beautifully sculpted in the round, from a solid block of dense sandstone, depicting a forest dwelling visionary elder known in Cambodia as "Rosei", a hermit sage with supernatural powers with the abilities to make philosphical worldly predictions. XXX Rosei is portrayed kneeling on a rectangular plinth, in a turned posture suppported by the left hand, while the right hand is held to the heart in mudra.

He is shown unclothed above the waist, wearing a mere short vertical straited sampot, secured by a decorative belt, and as always depicted bare footed. XXX Dedicated to the higher spiritual practice, Lersi's face reflects a serene, contemplative expression, characterized by a long tangled beard, mustache, and hair pulled back from his face, gathered in a topknot, supported by a band of beads. Ridged eyebrows, prominent nose, wide well-shaped mouth, and elongated earlobes are typical khmer style attributes, and compliment the artist's rendition. Hermit Sage - in general Lersi (rosei) are known as 'Ascetics' and are characterised by refraining from worldly pleasures.
