Description:
Carved gray stone corner architectural element. A fragment from a provincial temple in the vicinity of the Thai-Cambodian Border. The corner architechtural element is carved on two sides with a figure of the Buddha seated on a Naga. It illustrates the episode of the Serpent King who raised his hood and sheltered the meditating Sakyamuni form a storm. Originally four outward-looking haloed Buddhas: two remain and two have been partially or totally removed. At base, a smaller Buddha originally sat between each larger figure; now only two remain. There are traces of black pigment.
