Sage Agastya, 860 CE - Also Java ; Dieng - At Kailasa Museum , Dieng now

One of my favourite Javanese Agastya sculptures, also in standing posture, is currently housed at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Even the beads, possibly rudraksha, are visible despite the said sculpture being very old. It looks like Sage Agastya held sway in both the Deccan and Indonesian archipelago.
