Seated Buddha on his throne

19th Centruy



Sandalwood,red lacquer and gilding,

H33cm

Seated on a high throne the Buddha’s right hand performs the gesture of taking the Earth as witness while his left, with the palm turned upward, rests on his lap in contemplation. With his half-closed eyes, this Buddha conveys all the slight austere serenity typical of the Lao art which still displays a vigorous treatment free from the rather mannered decoration of the following period.
