Antique 18th Century Sukhothai Bronze Buddha Head - 24cm/10"
Measures - (Height) 24cm/10"
Ca. 18th century Sukhothai style mounted Buddha Head, from Thailand.
The Buddha features an oval face, with almond shaped downcast eyes. Curved eyebrows meet above a prominent nose, and contoured lips with an exalted expression, appear smiling. The shell like curls of the hair form a heart shaped line around the face, surmounted by a hemispherical ushnisha, topped by a flamed ornamental finial, symbolizing his high level of spiritual development, in the Sukhothai tradition. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings.
The bronze surface has naturally aged to a deep chocolate brown patina with traces of green malachite on the surface. The Buddha is mounted on a metal and wood base (later).
For it's age and delicacy the sculpture is in excellent condition.
This traditional in appearance piece is sure to add serenity to your home, office or sacred space.
One of the most recognisable of the Asian deities this representation of the spiritual teacher Buddha is sure to enlighten your home with endlessly timeless style.
