An andesite statue of a Hindu deity dating from around the 8th Century CE, from the center of Java, Indonesia. This representation probably comes from the Diéng Plateau, which was an important site of Hindu worship on Java from the 6th Century to the 8th Century CE. Diéng comes from the phrase Di Hyang, which means "home of the gods" in Javanese. Hundreds of Hindu temples were built on the Diéng Plateau, and the site was in use until the 9th Century CE.
From the Museum of Art History, (Musée du Cinquantenaire), Brussels, Belgium. Made with Zephyr 3D from 3D Flow.
