Description

Sukhothai art refers to the art and style of the Sukhothai period that began in the 14th century in the Sukhothai kingdom - the ancient capital of modern day Thailand. Buddha images of the Sukhothai period are elegant, with sinuous bodies and slender, oval faces. Sculptors did not base their images on strict human form but on interpretations of metaphors from religious verse and Pali language scriptures. This style emphasized the spiritual aspect of the Buddha, by omitting many small anatomical details. Inspired by Theravada Buddhism this new style merged spiritual serenity with human form and the numerous images of the Buddha - the flame shaped finial emerging from the top of the Buddha head reflects this style.

The sculpture is unique, cast using the lost wax method by artists in central Thailand. The skills used by these artists are passed on by each generation to ensure traditional skills and maintained and developed. This method of casting allows for greater detail and the artistry of its creator to be better reflected than other casting methods.

Material: Bronze Dimensions (HxWxD): 32cm x 11.5cm x 13cm
