Antique Burmese Marble Buddha Statue

$12,000

About

Finely carved from a solid block of white marble and decorated with red and gold pigments, this Buddha statue is depicted as seating on a lotus throne in an "Adamantine" position (Vajrasana), with his legs crossed and the soles of both feet turned up. His hands are in the gesture of Bhumisparsha mudra, a popular iconography of the seated Buddha in Southeast Asia means "calling the earth to witness his steadfastness". The style of this Buddha image is known as the "Shan Style", characterized by the typical bell shape usnisa (turban) the on the head and his iconic and his serene facial expression. After the Burmese capital was moved to Ava in 1636 during the Second Empire of the Taungoo dynasty (1551-1752), Buddha images were increasingly made of marble with a smooth finish on the surface and the minimum decoration rendered the image a simple and pure appearance. The statue retains much of the red pigment that was used for his hair and robes, with gilt applied on top. Green pigment was used for the base of the lotus throne. The piece is presented on a custom base in a floating rotatable design. An authentic antique piece with a strong sense of serenity.
