Item:153720127744Antique Sukhothai Style Bronze Meditating Naga Buddha Statue - 25cm/10"Measures – (Height) 25cm/10”An antique Sukhothai style meditation Muchalinda Buddha, seated on a three-tired throne, with the flaring head of a giant Naga, the serpent King Muchalinda, rising behind protectively behind. His hands are in the Dhyana mudra, the gesture of Meditation. The Buddha's face is serene, with a naturalistic and warm expression; his head is topped by a detailed ushnisha, in the Sukhothai style. The serpent is well rendered and symmetrical. The throne is formed by the coils of the serpent. The story told here being that Muchalinda protected the Buddha from heavy rain. The statue is cast in the round, rather than as a relief on a stela. From this, we can infer that Thai sculptors would have desired their artwork to be viewed from all sides and thus placed in the center of temples rather than against a wall. While this artwork was religious - priests supervised its execution - its realism is unmistakable. The Buddhas hands are in Dhyana Mudra, the hand gesture that promotes the energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy. This Buddha is also the Thai symbol for those born on a Saturday.
