Thai 18th Century Carved Teak Seated Buddha Calling the Earth to Witness



A Thai teak wood seated Buddha sculpture from the 17th-18th century, in the Calling the Earth to Witness position. Created in Thailand during the 17th or 18th century, this carved sculpture depicts the Buddha during the meditation that will bring him to the awakening. The Buddha resists the demon Mara’s assault and calls the earth to witness his determination. He is depicted in a characteristic Thai manner: pointed ears, conical and adorned usnisa or headpiece. Made of carved teak wood, the statue is placed on a large painted base inlaid with glass and mother-of-pearl, which enhances its great refinement. With its nice proportions and great presence, this remarkable Buddha sculpture will make for an exquisite decorative addition to any home, perhaps showcased in a foyer or living room.
