Thai Bronze Buddha Head, Ayutthaya Kingdom, U-Thong a Style, 14th Century

About

A beautifully patinated bronze Buddha head from the Kingdom of Ayutthaya, Thailand, circa 14th century. The Buddha's face has a distinct Khmer influence, with a square face and jaw, broad nose, and long straight lips curled up ever so slightly at the edges, in the beginnings of a knowing smile. The Buddha stares unflinchingly outwards from almond shaped eyes and slightly arched brows. Small ears with long pierced lobes frame his face. The hair is arranged in neat rows of tight curls, surmounted by a broad ushnisha, and topped by a large flame finial. The head, originally part of a larger sculpture, and now missing much of the back of the head, was originally gilt, with small traces remaining to the flame finial and areas of the face. Overall with a beautiful and complex patina of mottled greens, browns and reds. Height of head only: 8.5" Provenance: Bonhams San Francisco Elizabeth and Willard Clark collection, 1979.
