This nicely contoured Buddha face, carved in three separate wood panels, is from North Thailand. We add this contemporary Buddha to our collection, which over several decades has included only antique and vintage Buddha images, because it is an interesting interpretation of an ancient form. While features of Buddha representations varied from period to period and region to region down through the centuries, this contemporary piece recasts the traditional into sleek and striking. It is purely decorative yet retains some of the mystery of the old images. This is a large piece, guaranteed because of its size, content and brightness, to be a focal point in any room. It can be hung with the panels together or with space between them for more drama. The backs of the panels are flat and have metal rings for hanging. Dimensions when displayed as single piece: height 32” (81.3 cm), width 22 ½” (57 cm), edge depth 1” (2.5 cm). Each panel measures 7 ½” (19 cm) in width. When displayed with space between panels, the width is about 25” (63.5 cm).
