Gilded Bronze Buddha Statue Thailand ABA25

Seated in the bhumisparsa mudra, or earth witnessing posture, this superbly cast bronze Buddha image is in the Sukhothai style, characterized by a flame-like halo representing the Buddha’s spiritual intensity, graceful contours and long attenuated earlobes.

The Buddha statue has been gilded in 24ct gold leaf; Thais traditionally impress gold leaf upon Buddha images as an act of respect and devotion, especially on special dates of the Buddhist calendar. The gold gild has worn off in places over time. This image of the Buddha has a particularly attractive base decorated with a floral motif.
