16th Century Thai Ayutthaya Sandstone Torso of the Buddha


A lovely carved sandstone torso of the Buddha, Ayutthaya period (1350-1767), Thailand. Wonderfully simplistic, the only ornamentation this torso displays are the incised lines to denote the monastic robe draped over one shoulder and a narrow sash ending in a neat pleat. carved from a single block of buff colored sandstone, this torso would originally have been part of a larger statue. The head, legs and hands would have been carved separately, then joined to form the full figure. Resting on a custom Mid-Century wooden base.
