A large carved stone Cambodian 17th century lingam sculpture representing the Hindu God Shiva mounted on a base. This statue is made of a square section in its lower part below an octagonal middle and a curved circular top. The piece shows a nice patina and is mounted on a solid black stand. Terracotta versions of such lingam sculptures have their origins in Indus Valley civilizations in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC. There is some discussion about such linga in that some scholars suggest they are phallic symbols while others believe they are not. In both cases they still represent the god Shiva.

 

With a height of 30 inches, this 17th century Cambodian lingam statue representing Shiva the God of Destruction, Destroyer of Evil, will make a wonderful addition to a living room sitting on a buffet or in a bedroom sitting on a commode.
