Uma And Shiva

In stock


Thai StyleThe famous Khmer incarnation of the Shiva, ?Lord of the Mountain?, who came to beconsidered a king of the gods in the Khmer area. Cast in bronze with great detail allaround the figures, this deity is matched with his beloved spouse Uma. They bothwear the conical ?mukuta? headdress and royal regalia of the tenth/eleventh centuryKhleang style. These statues mimic originals that lost appendages throughout theages, but we suspect, had they arms, they would still be found in a timeless embrace.

Bronze Each piece you see here is made individually by our master artisans. The craftsmanship involved creates slight variations in color, finish, size, and shape - a quality we consider to be an added touch of uniqueness. The remarkable detail of our bronze sculptures is due to meticulous and labor-intensive care by Thai craftsmen to produce these unique sculptures of exquisite detail and timeless durability. Buffing, polishing, and patinising give each piece its final green-grey verdigris or bronze luster, which conveys the essence of what we at Eastern Serenity admire in South-East Asian art.
