Antique Polychrome Buddha on Lotus Throne


On offer is a craved wood polychromed Buddha from Burma, Southeast Asia, circa 19th century. The Buddha is seated on an unusual double-lotus throne in an "adamantine posture" (vajrasana), with his legs crossed and the soles of both feet turned up. The image was depicted in a common Burmese style known as the Shan-style, characterized by the typical bell shape of the usnisa (turban) on Buddha's head and his iconic and meditative facial expression. The surface of the statue has an exquisite natural aged patina that reflects the age of the piece.
