  • Head of Krishna(?), Si Thep style, 7th century
    Thailand (Phetchabun Province)
    Stone; H. 8 7/8 in. (22.5 cm)
    Purchase, Friends of Asian Art Gifts, 1993 (1993.201)

    Although this head is closely related to Pre-Angkor sculpture, the facial features show close affinities with the emerging Mon-Dvaravati style of Thailand. Typical of the production of the site of Si Thep is the faceted miter sitting high on the figure's forehead. This is also a feature of Si Thep images of Krishna lifting up Mount Govardhana, suggesting a possible identification.
