Absolutely stunning authentic (ex-Museum piece) early 20century large and beautiful cast brass statue of a Buddha from Southeast Asia ( Thailand or Burma) standing upon a circular pedestal. Heavy and slender and tall Buddha is shown with flowing Kasaya robes falling to his ankles and covering one shoulder. One hand forms a Vitarka mudra, a gesture of intellectual discussion and Buddhist teachings. His face has a tranquil visage of downcast eyes, broad nose, and full lips. His ears are elongated to symbolize casting off heavy jewelry and his ability to hear cries of suffering. His coiffure consists of individual nodules of curls that gather into a topknot. His shoulder and head are framed by a disc shaped halo. Size: 4.25" W x 15.25" H (10.8 cm x 38.7 cm). Figure has correct patina, weight and earthen deposits throughout befitting for its age.
