Antique lacquered gilt bronze Ayutthaya Buddha Statue 450 Dollar sold already
A rare Siam 18th. century Ayutthaya gilt bronze Buddha sits with legs crossed, right hand in the bhumispara mudra, the "calling the earth to witness" gesture, left hand in the mudra of meditation.
This posture symbolizes the union of method and wisdom, samasara and nirvana, and the realization of the conventional and ultimate truths. It was in this posture that Shakyamuni overcame obstructions while meditating on Truth, transforming delusions into mirror-like wisdom. The power of this classic Sukhothai Buddha is in its imperturbable trance-like quality, in which the weathered surface of the gilded bronze appears suffused with the glow of an inner light. The Sukothai or Sukodhaya Style flowered in the 12th-14th Century when an independent tradition arose that defined Thai art styles which continue to this day. The unique vision of Sukhothai art lies not in the invention of novel forms, but in its completely harmonious perception of realism.
This Ayutthaya is from the early 18th. century. Damage to pedestal and some gold lacquer is chipped off due to the age of this antique figure. Great aura and antique condition.
