Thai Ayutthaya Bronze Seated Buddha Figure, 14th-15th Century

About

Antique bronze Figure of Maravijaya Buddha, Thailand, Lan Na, Sukhothai post-classic style, 14th-15th century. Gracefully seated with legs folded in the hero pose exposing the sole of his well modeled right foot resting in the crook of his left leg in paryankasana position on a simple shaped base. The hands are cast with long elegant fingers like lotus flowers just beginning to open with fingertips curled back with curved nails like petals, the right hand in bhumisparsa mudra near the knee over the top of the right shin known as the earth touching position or subduing Mara. The left hand in dhyana mudra, resting in the center of his lap and at the heel of his right foot. He wears a diaphanous layered sanghati outlined with ridges at the wrist, waist, knees ankles and across his torso leaving his right arm uncovered revealing his pronounced nipple, the garment smoothly draped over his squared and rounded shoulders with arms firm and rounded like the trunk of an elephant, and with the robe edge folded over with reversing inflection, resembling a shawl over the left shoulder terminating in elegantly pleated folds also interpreted as “fishtail notch” ends to the edge of the garment that extends from just aside his navel to the base of his spine. The face in a calm meditative expression with downcast incised eyes beneath high arched brows and fine long aquiline nose, the lips incised in an enigmatic smile. The ears elongated to the first fold of the neck and the top corners slightly peaked. The hair rendered with a V hairline echoing the arch of the brow with large snail shell curls in rows and three tiers for the ushnisha topped by a three-layered flame finial symbolic of the Buddha’s radiant energy, the patina of dark brown tone with subtle red copper patches. 20th century custom teak wood base. Condition: Casting is thin and pitted in some areas otherwise in overall fine condition. Image measures: 13 in. high x 9-1/4 in. wide x 5 in. deep. The stand measures 1-3/4 in. high x 10-1/4” wide x 6-3/4 in. deep. Image Weight: 6 lb. 15 oz. Total weight: 8 lbs. 14 oz. 14th-15th century.
