This rare image survives from the early phase of Buddhist sculpture in Southeast Asia. Made in what is known as the Pra Khon Chai style, it has the characteristic sensitivity of expression, slender physique, and looped locks of hair. This figure once held a lotus flower in the right hand and flask in the left—identifying features of Avalokiteshvara in this region.
Northeastern Thailand, Khorat Plateau, Buriram Province
