Large and Fine Antique Bronze Buddha

About

A finely cast bronze statue of Shakyamuni Buddha, the historical Gautama Buddha, in a double-lotus seating position. In Classic Chinese Ming dynasty style and very Fine details in its artistry, this Buddha image exudes the calmness and compassion of Buddha. Attired in flowing robe with open chest and a high knotted belt, the Buddha posts a bhumisparsha mudra, known also as touching the earth or calling the earth to witness mudra. It symbolizes Buddha's victory over the attack of the demon Maras before he reached nirvana under the Bodhi tree. This piece has a hollow base, suggesting that it was probably seated on a lotus throne originally,, typical of the Ming dynasty statue. The surface of the Buddha displays a deeply aged patina. It is evident that the statue was gilt, polychromed in red and lacquered. That residual layer still remains at many spots throughout the entire piece, and inter-plays with the matured patina of the bronze surface now exposed. Together, they render the surface of the Buddha a very high antique quality.
