Head of Buddha

U-Thong period, 15th Century



bronze with gilding

H 16cm

U Thong art flourished in Central Thailand between the 12-15th century A.D. in the period when Khmer influence was diminishing or disappearing and before and during the early stages of the Ayutthaya Kingdom. As such U Thong style was influenced by previous and contemporary styles in the region. Typical of U Thong Buddha images is the small band between the hairline and the forehead. The head has very small curls. The ushnisha (or prominent bump on the top of Buddha's head) is topped by an elongated flame. The eyes are cast, not inlaid. Nice patina of deep brown and red color
