Huge 19th Century Gilt Reclining Buddha.  Statue.  Raintree.  Monkeywood.  Thailand

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



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.
