  • Buddha Statue - Antique Thai Style Standing Stone Dvaravati Buddha (probably) Statue - 58cm/23" Tall

    Measures (Height) 58cm/23"

    A sandstone standing Buddha (probably) masterpiece in early 8th century Dvaravati style.

    The artistry of Dvaravati Buddha statues, hailing from the ancient region of Dvaravati in Southeast Asia, stands as a testament to the rich cultural tapestry that once flourished in this historical landscape. Characterized by a distinctive style that exudes grace and serenity, these statues encapsulate the spiritual and artistic essence of a bygone era.

    As is expected, this Buddha exhibits the hallmark of Dvaravati art with the meticulous attention to symmetry and balanced proportions, with each element carefully measured to convey a sense of harmony and poise.

    This imposing sculpture is standing samabhanga, straight legged on a wood base. He is clothed in monastic dress composed of two traditional elements, an undergarment consisting of a long piece of cloth draped around the hips, and a long loose robe that covers both shoulders. The hem of his robes he holds in his left hand. 

    The clothing sensuously hugs the body revealing the anatomy beneath, a drapery style inspired by early seventh century Thai Dvaravati styles that can be traced back to styles in Gupta period India.

    Although the style resembles Dvaravati images carved in Thailand, the present Buddha is more sensuous than most Dvaravati Buddhas. The Buddha here is an appealing blend of Gupta, Dvaravati and Khmer characteristics.

    The arms are both broken off near the wrist. The position of the right forearm suggests that the missing hand was performing the vitarka mudra, the gesture of teaching, a common Dvaravati mudra. The slightly different angle of the projecting left forearm indicates that the left hand was depicted holding the ends of his robe, a few folds of which are still visible just below the arm. The Pre-Angkor-period seventh-century Buddha from Kompong Speu, just south of Phnom Penh, is shown in a similar pose with the same hand gestures, but without the wavy edges of the outer robe seen on the present Buddha's robe. The wavy drapery edges can be seen on an early Dvaravati-style Buddha torso in the Thompson Collection said to have come from Lopbur Province in Thailand,' and is an artistic characteristic found in seventh-century Indian art at Nalanda.

    This Buddha, with graceful form and serene expression, invites us to journey back in time to a civilisation where art and spirituality converged in harmonious unity, captivating with their timeless elegance. 

    The torso, which probably represented Buddha, is carved from sandstone.
