Pair of Massive Antique Bronze Buddha Head Thai Lana Kingdom

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A near pair of large and imposing antique cast bronze Buddha heads, now presented beautifully on professionally mounted three-tier Lucite bases. The style of the Buddha is typical of Northern Thailand, the former Lana Kingdom. Very tranquil and benevolent expression with downcast eyes, full face and large hair curls. Their flattened tip of the nose and a slightly upturned lips betray a subtle influence from the neighboring Khmer Kingdom.
The Buddha head is priced as a pair can be purchased individually. The height of the head only is about 24 inches.
