Standing Deity Hanuman, Angkor period, 11th century

This part focuses on Southeast Asian gilt bronze statues of gods and Buddhist deities from the 7th to 13th century. The statues are made using the lost-wax casting process, and therefore they have common qualities in their plasticity and smoothness of form.

Current exhibit includes:
Buddha Seated on a Pedestal, Central Java period, ca. 8th century
Seated Mahavairocana, Central Java period, 9th-10th century
Standing Deity Hanuman, Angkor period, 11th century
