Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

This is a Ratanakosin Buddha.  The Buddha’s face has thin features, ornately decorated robes and a long, pointy spire on top of the head, which is typical.  Most likely from the Rama V or VI Period just before the Rachakan style (looking more like Sakhothai Buddhas) became popular for temples and sacred places.  Seated with the right hand in an earth touching gesture and the left hand in the lap with palm upward (gesture of meditation).

Extremely well cast and highly detailed.  The gilt bronze is in good condition.  A few areas of almost hidden aging deterioration.  There is damage to the back,  lower and back part of the throne, and there is a seam around the neck.

The eye hook on the back usually signifies that it was made to hang on a temple wall.

Acquired from an art dealer shop outside Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  Circa late 1800s  to early 1900s.


For the Serious Collector.
