Wooden Sitting Buddha – WSB0002
Thailand, 15th century – 16th century (Kamphaeng Phet period). Wooden sitting Sukhothai Buddha with old lacquer and pigments. Seated in virasana on a base, his right hand lowered in bhumisparsha mudra – the gesture “ for the earth to witness”, the hair is cast in the uniquely Lao style of pointy spikes known as durian or thorn like curls and long slightly curved earlobes terminating towards the upper tip in a pointed fashion. Very rare pieces.
