~The Goddess Uma.
Date: 10th century
Period: Angkor period
Medium: Sandstone
Place of origin: Koh Ker, Cambodia

From the source: This hierarchic majestic figure wears a precisely pleated skirt whose downturned upper edge creates a prominent fold over the belt with dangling tassels visible below. This convention is typical of the tenth-century Angkor style. Three incised lines below her breast and along her neck express the ideal of ample beauty. While she lacks identifying attributes, the cylindrical shape of her hairstyle and the jeweled diadem on her forehead indicate that she is a goddess. The absence of a Buddha in her headdress suggests she is a Hindu deity, most likely Uma, consort of the god Shiva.
