On top of the lotus—a marker of the divine—a figure sits on one knee. Although this deity appears often in reliefs from the Khmer kingdom, which once encompassed present-day Cambodia and much of Thailand, his identity remains a mystery. The bronze figure takes the same asymmetrical posture: one knee raised and one hip lifted, as if ready to stand. Look closely to see the ends of reins in his hands and his lotus seat, which suggest he represents a divine charioteer.
