Monumental Bronze 33" Seated Enlightenment Buddha 19thc Old UK Collection

About

Fine Indoor or garden choice, one of our finest and largest Bronze Buddhas we have had the pleasure of owning. From a fifty year old UK Buddhist collection comes one of our tallest Buddhas, 33" high. Thailand antique bronze seated Buddha Shakyamuni, in U Thong style, fine condition. Photographed in natural day light. This beautiful Buddha sculpture will bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office, sacred space, or garden. The Buddha is seated, in virasana, cross-legged symbol of Serenity, with both hands in the Bhumisparsa or 'Calling Earth to Witness' mudra. With fingers slightly touching the ground this position represents the subduing of Mara (a demon) who bombarded Buddha with demons, monsters, violent storms and the three seductive daughters. Remaining steadfast the Buddha testified to his meritorious past by pointing to the earth and calling the Earth Goddess, Thorani. Rising from the ground the Earth Goddess wrings the water from her long black hair. By this action she raises a torrential flood that drowns Mara and his army of demons. This gesture reflects this story symbolizing enlightenment, as well as steadfastness and Buddha’s achievement of perfection or nirvana. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. He has a lotus bud shaped ushnisha protuberance on top of his head that symbolizing his high level of spiritual development. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. Provenance: Ex- private UK Collection, acquired before 1965. Mudra: Bhumisparsa or Enlightenment Measures: Height 82cm / 33” Fine original patina appropriate for age with Certificate of Authenticity handmade and hand cast. Excellent garden consideration. Only one. "Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity". All of our Asian works of art come with our "Lifetime Authenticity Guarantee."
