Description

This handsome reproduction is based on a bronze seated Buddha in The Met collection. The elegant proportions and modeling, the style of the garments, the physiognomy, and the high flame finial all combine to localize the style of the sculpture to northern Thailand in the late fifteenth to early sixteenth century.

He is seated on a lotus throne in the cross-legged yogic posture of satvaparyankasana, the right leg placed over the left. His right hand is lowered, long fingers pointing downward in the earth-touching gesture, or bhumisparshamudra. The latter symbolizes his triumph over the forces of the demon Mara, who attempted to distract him from his quest for enlightenment, a ubiquitous theme in Thai Buddhist art. Our reproduction is cast from a mold made directly from the original.
