Vintage Bronze Gold and Green Thai Figurine of Prince Rama with a Bow

About the Item

Vintage bronze statue in gold and green of Prince Rama shooting an arrow. The large bronze sculpture depicts Lord Rama, a revered figure in Hindu mythology, standing majestically with a powerful and graceful demeanor. Hand-crafted with intricate attention to detail, the sculpture captures the essence of Lord Rama's heroic and divine nature. Standing on a sturdy base, Lord Rama's form is characterized by a balanced stance, exuding a sense of confidence and strength. His muscular physique is sculpted realistically, showcasing his prowess as a warrior. He is portrayed in a traditional dhoti (loincloth) that drapes elegantly around his legs, evoking a sense of timeless regality. Lord Rama's facial expression exudes a sense of calm determination, with his gaze fixed ahead, focused on his target. His chiseled features convey his royal heritage and divine nature. The intricately carved crown on his head signifies his royal lineage, while his calm demeanor reflects his composed character. The sculpture's surface bears intricate patterns and detailing, adding depth and texture to the artwork. The drapery of his dhoti showcases delicate folds and creases, giving the sculpture a sense of movement and life. The details of his jewelry, such as necklaces and armlets, are meticulously etched, reflecting his royal stature. The overall patina of the bronze sculpture gives it an antique and timeless quality, evoking a sense of reverence and tradition. Whether displayed in a temple, a museum, or a private collection, this sculpture of Lord Rama with his bow serves as a visual representation of his valor, nobility, and devotion to dharma (righteousness). The bronze and gilt statue depicting Phra Ram, aka Rama, as an archer. To a Thai or Burmese Buddhist it represents the importance of wisdom, effort, patience and concentration on the journey to bliss. Rama is the hero of the Ramakien, the national epic of Thailand. It is derived from the Ramayana and adapts the Hindu myths to Buddhist teachings. Rama was a bold and powerful warrior as well a devout and virtuous man. The traditional figure of the "Thai Archer" shows Rama as both: with his bow and armor he is a fighter, but his very specific, yogic pose and hand gestures show he is also a seeker of enlightenment. Attaining purity of mind and hitting a target both require concentration, effort, patience and knowledge. That is the meaning of the statue. Through wisdom (the bow) one launches the virtues that lead to bliss. If there was an arrow it would pass directly through his head, but that is a part of the metaphor: The arrow is invisible because it is the archer's concentrated thought or prayer. The Thai bronze sculpture was casted using traditional lost-wax process. Bronze enamel finish on hand painted green clothes and head dress with red and gold details. The bronze sculpture sit on a metal bronze stand. Dimensions: Height: 18.5in x Width: 12 in Depth: 3.5 in. Stand: 3.5" Depth x 4.5" Width.
