Thailand. Subtitle: Sukhothai Art - An amazing bronze sculpture carved by an inspired, highly skilled Sukhothai artisan. Description: A magnificent and extremely rare 19th to 20th century bronze Sukhothai Buddha, from a temple precinct in the Sukhothai province of northern Thailand, beautifully rendered in an exalted profile, intricately carved with exacting detail. Temple blessed and consecrated, Buddha stands on an elevated Rosewood pedestal, measuring 35.25 inches (89.54cm) in height. XXX A large rendition portrayed simple and elegant, with the elements of form and proportion conveying a sense of rhythmic motion, as if by mystical means levitating in meditation, walking with his right heel lifted and the left foot forward. The left arm is bent at the elbow with the hand raised in performing the 'Abhaya' mudra, the gesture of reassurance and fearlessness. Typical of Sukhothai walking images the right arm is draped to his right side, appearing curved like that of an elephants trunk. XXX Buddha is modeled with dramatically curved contours, having well-defined broad shoulders, the chest inflated, and a narrow waist, wearing a long sanghati robe in the 'Open Mode' worn diagonally over the left shoulder, leaving the right shoulder and breast uncovered, with the end fold draped to his mid-section, and marked with a fish-tail knotch. The undergarment is secured by the hint of a thin belt around the waist, with a central pleat draped in the front that desends down to the garments hem. XXX The somewhat elongated head bears an ovoid shape, with shapely outlined curls of the head dip into the middle of the forehead to form a point, giving the face a heart shape. The eyebrows curve like a bow, downcast eyes like lotus petals, and the nose pointed like a parrot's beak , a wide mouth with insipid smile, is framed by a second set of lips, recessed at the corners, and elongated earlobes stop short of the shoulders. The hair is knotted in snail-shell shaped spirals, surmounted by a hemispherical 'Ushnisha', crowned with a tall flame-like Halo, representiing the Buddha's spiritual energy. XXX Cast in the lost wax method, the bronze surface has a naturally aged chocolate brown patina, with remnants of gilt gold throughout. Origin:xxxxxxxxx Temple District, Sukhothai Province, Thailand.
