The head depicts a young monk, not Buddha. It would have been placed in or near a Thai Buddhist temple as part of a retable of religious themes, perhaps depicting episodes in the life of Buddha. It is sandstone and from the Ayutthaya period, 15th-16th century. Ayutthaya sculpture is among the most refined of all Thai art and considered the golden age of Thai culture.
