Head of a deity or Bodhisattva. The turban consists of a band at the hairline, a large rectangular ornament in the centre with traces of a raised border and small discs at the corners and bands radiating from it set with florets and beads. Beside the surviving ear, which now lacks a lobe, is a sideburn of wavy hair. On the forehead is a raised circular ūrṇā. The eyes are long and horizontal with narrow slits under low fleshy lids and a pronounced slope outwards to the sharp edges for eyebrows which continue onto a nose with a flat ridge and wide wings. The small mouth with shaped lips and large corner cavities is set back in the fleshy face above a full chin. The expression is one of an incipient smile. There are traces of red pigment on the turban bands and lips and in the eyes.
