Description

A large antique gilt bronze Buddha figure of the Rattanakosin period (1782-1932).

In the Bhumisparsha mudra (posture), seated on a multi-tiered plinth with traces of original red lacquer. This serene figure also retains most of its original gilding.

A mudra is a gesture/ body posture conveying special meanings and commemorating a few of the important moments in Buddha’s life. One of the most popular mudras depicted in Buddha statues is the Bhumisparsha, translated as the ‘earth touching’ or ‘earth worship’ gesture.

Due to the recent prohibition of the export of Buddha images from Asia, these iconic bronzes are becoming much more difficult to source, as such with significant increase in values.
