For your consideration, a gorgeous red sandstone carving of the Buddha. Red sandstone buddhas like this are usually from India. The age, frankly, is unknown. It can be 50 or 500 years old. The carving is quite fine, from the tiny curls in his hair to his fleshy cheeks and neck. Please see the link below for a very similar buddha featured at the Rhoffman Gallery of Chicago in 2006 that dates to the 5th to 6th century.

Pictures 4 and 5 show the back of the head, which is slightly flattened, rough and unfinished, indicating that the sculpture might have been taken from a larger structure. The piece is in excellent condition with no prior repairs and measures 7.5 inches in height. An exquisite and serene addition for your home.
