Attractive Seated Bronze Ayutthaya Buddha

.....

Thank you for looking at this auction for a charming South East Asian Bronze figure of the Buddha.

Very well made, this statue is in beautiful condition.

......

The Enlightened one depicted cross-legged, in the half lotus position. His upturned left hand resting on his crossed lower limbs. His hands rest in his lap in a meditative pose known as 'Dhyana-Mudra'.

He is depicted wearing loose-fitting robe, his hair tightly curled with cone shaped finial, usnisha and crown.

The Buddha's face is sensitively carved with serene expression.

The continuous eye-line and cone shaped finial show that this is a Ayutthaya style statue.

.....

The Buddha's decision to renounce worldly possessions is represented here by the elongated earlobes. This is a reflection of Prince Siddhartha Gautama's life of luxury, where he used to wear heavy jewellery, before he chose to follow the path to enlightenment.

.....

The statue is in very good condition, with an attractive brown and green colour age acquired patina.

Height of sculpture: 85 mm.

Width at base: 63 mm.

Weight of statue 123 grams
