A Monumental Gilded Copper Head of Buddha (SOLD)

Tibet

18/19th Century

The half closed almond shaped eyes are showing Buddha in a sublime and meditative state. In the centre of his forehead is the Urna, the all seeing third eye and surmounting the blue pigmented tightly knotted hair coils is the domed Usnisa, the all knowing bump of knowledge.
