Provenance: formerly in the collection of Seward Kennedy, acquired in the 1960's.
This beautiful sandstone sculpture, which dates to between the 10th and 12th centuries, depicts Lord Hanuman, leader of the monkey army and hero of the Ramayana. In this epic tale, Hanuman is the brave companion of Prince Rama, who helps the prince to find his wife Sita, abducted by the demon Ravana.
A comparable sandstone head of Hanuman from Madhya Pradesh is held in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago (Inv. 1997.720), while another example from Uttar Pradesh, dating to the 11th century, is held by the Norton Simon Museum of Pasadena, California (Inv. M.1975.18.2.S).
