Guest Book
This is a museum-quality 16th century bronze Ava Buddha with a dedication inscription on the back of the high stepped throne. The bronze has aged to a wonderful black patina, and remaining gold leaf on the finely modeled figure and throne adds richness. The face has sweeping brows and well executed eyes. The high usnisha is topped with a narrow lotus bud finial. The Buddha sits in interlocking lotus position with the bottoms of both feet prominently displayed. Subtle, pleasing designs mark the edges of the robe and steps of the throne. This elegant Buddha is in very good condition, with just the tip of the finial missing. Dimensions: height 9" (23 cm), width 4" (10 cm), depth 2" (5 cm).
