Head of Bodhisattva

I could have gone a lot of different ways given the title of this post. I opted for form over emptiness and, as a result, offer simply an image of the head of a limestone bodhisattva from the Northern Qi dynasty (550-577) in Henan Province, China. My thoughts about what may actually be going on inside the head of a bodhisattva will have to wait until a later date. [NOTE: Statue is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; see Bodhisattvas at Chua Tay Phuong for a look at some other exquisite bodhisattva statues].
