This four-armed deity wears a sarong skirt, with its pleated end folded over the belt, as was the fashionable Bakheng style during this period. The incised lines beneath the breasts indicated folds of flesh as marks of beauty. This figure relates to the sculptures of the Phnom Bakheng, a temple dedicated to Shiva.
