Heavenly beauty, pillar decoration, anonymous, c. 1300 - c. 1500

terracotta, h 35.0cm × w 20.5cm × d 14.0cm More details

In contrast to Javanese sacred figures made of stone, which tend to be rigid and formal, their terracotta counterparts are often naturalistic and three-dimensional. This heavenly beauty with large ear ornaments once adorned the base of a wooden pillar in a Javanese house or in a pendopo, an open pavilion supported by columns.
