19th C. Thai Bronze Buddha Hand - Vitarka Mudra

Lot 0047A Details

Description
Thailand, late 19th to early 20th century CE. This is a really striking piece, a realistic bronze hand with a lotus flower symbol on the palm and the fingers in the position of the Vitarka Mudra -- the thumb and forefinger joined, the palm facing outward away from the Buddha. The Vitarka Mudra is the mudra of "discussion", indicating transmission of Buddhist teaching. The circle formed by the finger and thumb symbolizes the constant flow of information and energy. This is most commonly done with the right hand (as this one here). Comes with custom wooden stand. Size: 3.5" L x 3.1" W x 6.75" H (8.9 cm x 7.9 cm x 17.1 cm)

Provenance: Ex- Private Collection, New England

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.

We ship worldwide and handle all shipping in-house for your convenience.
