Seated Bronze Buddha Statue, Thailand
Detail: I acquired this from a reputable antique dealer in Thailand upon his visit to the United States. He claims that this statue is from the late-1700s to the early-1800s. It is a bit on the crude side but that was the general nature of a statue from that period. There are three additional Buddhas seated around the larger Buddha. Leaves of a Bodhi tree are behind the upper Buddha figure. All sit on a pedestal with other characters on the sides of the pedestal. On the back of this statue is another Buddha inside a shrine like structure. For the Serious Collector.
