Seated Crowned Buddha in meditation on his throne
17th Century, Ayutthaya period
bronze, nice old patina
The Buddha is seated in the mudra of meditation with his both hands resting in his lap and his two feet visible. The typical Ayutthaya crowned Buddha, with such features as the headdress of tiered rings and a refined patterned diadem, appears to have become established at the end of the 15th century or during the course of the 16th century; after that, the sculptors varied little but the details of the decoration of the crown. He has a quiet, dignified expression.
The surface has a deep varying patina consistent with a 17th Century dating.
