Late 17th Century, Gilded Bronze Buddha in Abhaya Mudra, Art of Thailand

$22,800

About

This gilded bronze statue is exceptional both in size and presence. The master is here represented standing in the gesture of 'Abhaya-Mudra', 'Absence of fear', both hands raised, palms open. He is dressed in Uttarasanga, a large draped piece, clasping both shoulders and embellishing a piece of fabric falling in supple folds from the left shoulder and back. The edges of the mantle spread to the sides, leaving the Antaravasaka covering the ankles of the Master. This rich and elegant garment is decorated with simple stripes and goes down well under the knees. The headdress is made of rows of small pearls going up to the top of usniça. The face, full cheeks and rounded chin, half-closed eyes beneath the ocular arches which meet at the nasal ridge, the sensual lips animated with a slight smile confers to this Buddha an expression of benevolent serenity. A piece remarkable for the care given to its craftsmanship, the balance of its proportions and the refinement of its pure lines, as well as its expression of gentleness and spirituality. Art of Thailand Late 17th century, Ayuthaya Kingdom Gilded bronze Dimensions: Height 150 cm Width 39 cm.
