At 1016 Madison Avenue, Christophe Hiocoof Paris reveals a remarkable bluish-gray limestone head of Buddha in his exhibition, "Arts of India, Nepal and Vietnam." The sculpture is a monumental example of the finest art of the Mon-Dvaravati period, circa 7th-8th century C.E. So rare is the work that the last time a similar one was seen on the market was more than a quarter century ago, in 1988.
