Description

Ca. 19th century bronze Buddha Shakyamuni from Thailand. The Buddha is seated preaching to his followers.
The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. He has a large ushnisha protuberance on top of his head that symbolizing his high level of spiritual development. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. The casting is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The distinctive patina of the piece is also particularly delightful.
Please contact us for high resolution images of the piece.
