Standing Buddha with his right hand raised in abbaya mudra

Ayutthaya period, 17th Century



gilt lacquered bronze

H38cm

A elegant standing Buddha with his feet slightly apart on a tiered circular pedestal, his right hand raised in abbaya mudra (the gesture of dispelling fear) and his left hand pendant by his side. His face is very soft and smiling, with his eyes half closed, his hair is arranged in small curls beneath a domed chignon rising to a tall flame finial. The sanghati covers both shoulders with a broad belt and a central fold between the legs. The monastic robe is flowing in the air by two sides. The bronze has extensive gilding, red and black lacquer on the surface.

Private German collection, acquired in Frankfurt april 1960 (copy of catalogue of auction house available)
