SCBR10 - Bronze Queen Indradevi Statue - 24cm

After the death of his first wife Queen Jayarajadevi, Jayavarman VII married her sister Indradevi. These two women are commonly thought to have been a great inspiration to Jayavarman VII particularly in his unusual devotion to Buddhism, as only one prior Khmer king was a Buddhist. Has King and Consort they improved significantly the power of the Khmer empire and oversaw construction of the great temples of Bayon and Ta Prohm at Angkor.

 

This bronze sculpture is provided with a unique aging to the piece. The applied patina is representative of antique pieces that can be viewed in National Collections throughout the world. However, as a reproduction it does not impact the historic legacy of the country by removing National Treasures from their original environment.
