A pair of standing monks in copper alloy
17th Century, Ayutthaya period
copper alloy with traces of lacquer and gilding
H 22-22,5 cm
The monks are standing with their hands in anjali mudra. Their faces evoke an expression of great serenity. Their eyes are half-closed, gazing downwards. Their hair is arranged in small snail-shell curls. The two figures are at the same time human and of an idealised beauty.
