About

Pre-Angkorian statue of Ganesh of the Koh Ker (10th century - 928 - 944) totally complete (one of the only, or even the only), sitting in suit and wearing a necklace. This sublime sculpture comes from Cambodia's capital, Koh Ker, during the reign of Jayavarman IV, from 928 to 944 and rests on an oval base in the shape of a lotus foliated throne. Ganesh, son of Shiva and Parvati, is the God of Hinduism, representing the wisdom recognizable to his elephant head. This museum piece worthy of the greatest collections is accompanied by a provenance and will be delivered with its certificate of the Art Loss Register.
