Description
This bronze Buddha is heavily gilt and exhibits the intricate filigree details found in the most exquisite South-East Asian icons. The Buddha has one hand resting on his leg with elongated fingers that stretch downward signifying his grounded inner-self. His other hand rests in the symbol of inner peace and unity. There appears to be a container in this hand as well. This container was probably used to hold a live lotus blossom, the symbol of Buddhism itself. The Buddha's elongated earlobes tells of his great wisdom and mental powers. Above him is a four teared canopy. Visually it draws the eye down to the figure and tells of his high status. Spiritually the canopy serves as a type of antennae that draws power from the heavens and instills it into the core of the figure. This piece with its brilliance, great detail and overwhelming sense of meditative power, would make an excellent part of any collection. - (FZ.296)
