The art of both Mon and Srivijaya (ancient Indonesia) are closely derived from Gupta styles as we see in the ovoid face, prominent arching eyebrows, outlined eyes and mouth with upturned corners, and large, close-cropped, snail-shaped curls.

We are grateful to Dr Heather Elgood of SOAS who kindly helped to identify this figure.
