Bronze Siamese Asian Buddha Antiquity Hand Sculpture, 15th-16th Century

$3,450

About

A wonderful and very special piece. This bronze buddha hand sculpture, perhaps a fragment of a larger piece at one time, originally came from the prestigious Doris Wiener Gallery in New York City (please see the gallery tag on the underside of the wood base). She was the biggest dealer in Asian art and artifacts. Her clients included the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Australia, The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Norton Simon Museum of Art, and The Brooklyn Museum to name a few. Christie's sold much of her collection in 2012. We think this piece is from Siam (now Thailand), but it could very well be from any number of countries, Burma, Laos, Cambodia, etc.. in the region. The notation on the gallery tag attached on the underside of the wood base dates this piece to somewhere in the 15th-16th centuries. This piece would clearly be a great addition to any Asian artifacts collection and sure to stand out when properly displayed in many settings. Dimensions including wood base: 2.25" high, 5.5" wide, 2.25" deep.
