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.
