Newly carved from reclaimed teakwood, this bust takes the form of King Jayavarman VII, the builder of Angkor Wat. Many carvings in the 12th Century temple depict Buddha figures with the great king's likeness. The teak used in this carving came from an old rice pounder. Now abandoned in favor of modern rice-mills, wooden mortars had thick walls and large pounding bowls and were hollowed from an entire section of a teak tree. Carvers favor this wood because of its rare combination of strength and softness -it is the perfect wood for delicate subjects like faces and hands. Traditional carving still survives in the north of Thailand, in and around Chiang Mai. This carving has a tall multi-tiered crown featuring and Bayon-style face.
