Superb eight arm figure from Cambodia or Vietnam. Purchased from a gentleman who bought this many years ago from a farmer in rural Vietnam along with several other pieces the farmer had been keeping in his barn. The seller believed that this piece is late Cham style. The Cham culture (Champa) floursihed in an area which is now part of southern Vietnam. While the Cham culture (as the parallel Khmer culture in Cambodia) flourished for many centuries up through the 13th century, I believe that this piece is antique, though probably not a period piece. Possibly 18/19thC, though I am truly not sure. Large, with a total height of 17", bottom measures 3.75" square. Beautiful, with a commanding presence.
