18th Century Antique Chiang Saen Mounted Buddha Head Statue - 30cm/12"
Measures - (Height) 30cm/12"
Ca. 18th century antique Thai bronze Buddha head in Chiang Saen style.
The head is sensitively rendered with a softly contoured face and serene contemplative expression, with arched eyebrows bowed high towards the forehead, set above heavy-lidded eyes, rounded face, well-shaped nose, bow-shaped lips with a welcoming smile, and prominent elongated ears. The head is covered in thorn-like hair curls, surmounted by a Chiang Saen style 'Ushnisha'.
The surface has a beautifully aged patina. The weight of the sculpture is higher than might be expected, due to the thickness of the bronze casting. The Buddha is mounted on a metal and wood base (later).
This traditional in appearance piece is sure to bring serenity to your home, office or sacred space.
One of the most recognizable of the Asian deities this representation of the spiritual teacher Buddha is sure to enlighten your home with endlessly timeless style.

As complicated as it may originally sound, you needn’t be a Sherlock Holmes to unlock the secrets of identifying the Buddha. In fact, there are generally two key criteria to look out for.
