Head from a Buddha image. The head is round to oval; the raised hairline has a central peak and the hair is in rows of snail-shell curls in prominent relief. High edges for eyebrows curve evenly over the eyes; the right eye is slightly smaller and lower. The nose is thin and not quite straight above well-shaped lips. The chin is full and the damaged ears are close to the head.
Vestiges of red are on the eyelids, mouth and ears; traces of dark pigment survive on the hair and eyebrows.
