A sandstone standing figure
Pre-Angkor period, 7th century, Cambodia
Height: 75 cm, 29.6 inches
She is dressed in a sampot that clings to her legs, revealing their shape. This garment is gathered in folds at the front- rising slightly beneath the navel; it is held in place, around the hips, by a wide and ornately carved belt.The figure is voluptuous and sensuous, and the sandstone smooth and polished.
