This head is of the Buddha, a religious figure in many Asian countries.  This head is idealized because there is not enough detail to make the Buddha look like it is representing one specific person from real life. All images of Buddha show him in the same expression and with similar facial decoration. Buddha was actually a historical person, but the images of Buddha are trying to represent the godliness of his being by showing him beautified, making him more of a symbol of enlightenment and peace than trying to be like a specific person.
