Absolutely stunning authentic 19th century large and beautiful gilt brass statue of a Buddha in the Bangkok style standing upon a pedestal. The integral pedestal underside is hollow, but almost completely filled in with remnants of brick to strengthen or secure the base to an architectural element. The three-tiered pedestal is decorated with lotus petals around the Buddha's feet. He stands straight and presents one palm facing outward, forming the abhayamudra gesture of fearlessness. The slender body and face are beautifully contoured with a serene expression and downcast eyes, arched brows, a naturalistic nose, and full lips. Atop the head is Buddha's distinctive coiffure with a prominent, pointed "flaming" ushnisha. He dons lavish royal attire and jewelry, and the flaring panels of cloth at his sides are similar to Thai royal clothing. The embellishments of brilliant gold leaf make this truly a splendid devotional piece, fit for aristocracy. Size: 5.1" W x 18.7" H (13 cm x 47.5 cm) Figure has correct patina, weight and earthen deposits throughout befitting for its age.
