Head of a deity or Bodhisattva turned to his left. The oval head has thick corkscrew curls below a fillet or twisted band strung with a spherical ribbed bead in the middle and with a disc at each side. The hair above it is in vertical grooves into a fantail chignon bound at its base and with a lock or ribbon undulating at each side (compare BM 1931.0724.3). The head has long open eyes, a flattened nose and lips, and vestigial ears. Red pigment marks the ūrṇā, ears, eyes and perhaps the fillet.
