Cambodian Buddha Head

We took a trip from Thailand to Cambodia the other week and were pleased to find some Khmer Buddhas in a couple of exceptional temples and stores. There were some crystal Buddhas that we'd love to be able to offer on our site, but I think it would take bribing someone at the border a couple thousand dollars US to get it past. One in particular was easily worth $20,000 USD and weighed about 40 KG. It was a beautiful crystal...clear... well shaped Buddha...

I will find my photos of it here shortly.

In the meantime, here is a large bronze Buddha head in one of my favorite stores at a market place.

If you are interested in Cambodian Buddhas - we did buy 3 small, pure jade Khmer Buddha figurines that we'll be putting on our main site (see right column for info).
