deaccessioned on
10.14.2015
reason
Probably a fake. Many incongruent elements: chin appears too round, and drapery makes illogical turns. Given small size of object, joinery not needed so holes are illogical. Surface of breaks is same as carved areas. Iconography is worng. Deaccession suggested by Sonya Rhie Quintanilla (Curator of South and Southeast Asian Art, Cleveland Museum of Art)
