Late 17th Century, Bronze Buddha Head, Ayutthaya Kingdom, Art of Thailand

About

The founding of the kingdom of Ayutthaya by the Prince of U Thong in 1350 also marks the birth of a unified Thailand. The master is recognized here by his usniça- seat of his supra worldly wisdom and the pronounced elongation of his auricular lobes, two of the physical perfections that have granted him. His eyelids are half closed and lowered on the inner contemplation. The nose is aquiline while the mouth with marked lips comes alive with a splendid smile under the effect of his spiritual enemy and the depth of his meditation. This is a unprecedented piece to appreciate the highly skilled casting technique. Through the medium of bronze, the sculptor worked the surface into most minute details to capture the power, realism, and serene expression of Buddha. Art of Thailand, late 17th century, Ayutthaya Kingdom   Bronze   Dimensions: Hight 35 cm Width 23 cm.
