About

Extremely decorative; these authentic 18th century or earlier Ayutthaya period Thai bronze Buddhas were fashioned into bookends due to their losses of appendages and legs. Very detailed quality casts! Measures: Height 11 inches (each) Width 4.75 inches Depth 3.7 inches. Thai standing protection Buddha, circa 18th century. The Buddha is depicted in Abhaya mudra offering protection to the devotee. The large ushnisha protuberance on top of his head, symbolizes his high level of spiritual development. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. The Buddha is stood on a wood pedestal (later). The casting is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the fingers and toes. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The distinctive patina of the piece is also particularly delightful. The peaceful countenance of Lord Buddha exudes harmony. The Abhaya mudra ""gesture of fearlessness"" is a mudra (gesture) that offers protection, reassurance and safety. Dispelling fear and according divine protection and bliss in many Indian religions. The right hand is held upright, with the palm facing outwards. This is one of the earliest mudras found depicted on a number of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain images. The sculpture provides the perfect traditional in appearance Buddha to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.
