Part of ancient Vishnu statue head found

Recommended Posts

Part of an ancient Vishnu statue has been discovered by Trapeang Phong temple restoration team in Kork Srok village, Roluos commune, Prasat Bakong district, Siem Reap province, which was found on the right side of the temple’s central tower on March 31.


Apsara Authority spokesman Long Kosal told Khmer Times that the fragment of the statute head was handed to the authority by the restoration team and is made of sandstone and measures 38 centimetres high, 20 centimetres wide and 18 centimetres thick.


He said the recovered piece only shows one side of the head, with an eye, an eyebrow, part of a nose, lips and ears with a cylindrical crown on top of the head that runs from the hairline across the front to the back. Kosal noted the short face, with brows not separated, and the high cylindrical crown on top of the head clearly depicts that it is a Kulen style sculpture.
