Peaceful. Beautifully detailed robe and adorned with multicolored mirrors. From a collector of Thai statues in Miami Florida USA.

 

The reclining Buddha represents Shakyamuni. It is said that the Buddha knew death was approaching and asked his disciples to prepare a couch for him in a grove of trees. He lay there, reclining on his right side, facing west, with his head supported by his hand….. as he passed into nirvana.

 

In very good condition for its age.
