  • Head of a Buddha, Mon–Dvaravati period, 9th century
    Thailand (Ratchaburi Province)
    Stucco; H. 10 3/4 in. (27.3 cm)
    Gift of The Kronos Collections, 1987 (1987.417.5)

    This head is an ideal example of the refined Mon-Dvaravati period. The subtle articulation of planes that make up the face is characteristic of this high moment of sculptural refinement. The fact that it is fabricated in stucco suggests it originally embellished an architectural structure.
