Large Antique Bronze Earth Enlightened Buddha Serene Downcast Eyes, 19th Century

About

From a fifty year old private UK collection measuring 28" tall Thailand Antique seated Buddha calling the earth to witness, hand cast bronze, 19th century, U Thong style. This beautiful Buddha sculpture will bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office, sacred, or garden space. The Buddha is seated on a pedestal in virasana cross-legged symbol of Serenity, with both hands in Bhumisparsa or 'Calling the earth to witness' mudra. With fingers slightly touching the ground this position represents the subduing of Mara (a demon) who bombarded Buddha with demons, monsters, violent storms and the three seductive daughters. Remaining steadfast the Buddha testified to his meritorious past by pointing to the earth and calling the earth goddess, Thorani. Rising from the ground the earth goddess wrings the water from her long black hair. By this action she raises a torrential flood that drowns Mara and his army of demons. This gesture reflects this story symbolizing enlightenment, as well as steadfastness and Buddha’s achievement of perfection or nirvana. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. A wonderful peaceful example that you will grow to love. Provenance: Ex- London collection, acquired before 1970. Mudra: Bhumisparsa or Enlightenment Height: 69cm / 28” Fine original old patina from appropriate age. Handmade and hand cast. Excellent garden consideration. Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity: All of our Asian works of art come with our Lifetime Authenticity Guarantee. "Certificate of Authenticity".
