Object ID: BL77S4
Designation: Head of a mythological figure
Place of Origin: Indonesia | perhaps Candi Sukuh or Candi Ceta | Central Java
Credit Line: Gift of the Christensen Fund
The complexes from which this head probably came, Candi Sukuh or Candi Ceta (candi means “temple”), are among the last monuments constructed from the glorious Hindu- Buddhist tradition of Java that had brought forth such extraordinary amalgamations of architecture and sculpture as Borobudur some seven centuries earlier. One trend over those centuries was toward greater stylization. Here, the head seems to have been regularized into an egg shape and the upturned curves of mouth, eyes, and eyebrows have been made to echo each other. This head appears to have ornaments, or perhaps flower buds, looped over the ears and extending toward the face.

Janganlah ditangisi bila artefak sejarah kita dimiliki Kolektor dan Museum ASING, mungkin itu dijarah saat masa penjajahan atau dijual orang kita sendiri atau bahkan anak keturunan yang sedang membutuhkan uang.
