- Curator's comments
Jan Fontein wrote The Sculpture of Java that Stamford Raffles visited Candi Jago in 1815, and while he did not mention the temple in his History of Java, there is a fanciful picture of the sculpture in the volume.
Sandstone figure of a goddess seated cross legged on an oval lotus throne, holding a lotus in left-hand. A slab of sandstone at the back inscribed Bhavri Bamaki. The first word is uncertain, the letters being broken, and it may be unintended for Bhavari. The figure rather resembles Lakshmi. Found near Singa Sari, Java.
