Huge 19th Century Gilt Reclining Buddha. Statue. Raintree. Monkeywood. Thailand
Carved from RainTree (Monkeywood) which has a mahogany grain but it related to a flowering tree in the pea family, this detailed piece is impressive.
A portion of the handcarved curls have detached from the head but that is quite normal for its age. I have stabilized additional loss with a museum-quality sealant. Other than that, this statue is in very good condition.
An investment grade piece of art.
For the Serious Collector.
This stunning piece has sold. Thanks. M.S.
