Sold to Private Collection

This 18th Century Siam sculpture is an exquisite example of the merging of meticulous detail with broad modeling. The devoted bodhisattva sits in rapt devotion, hands in supplication, wearing a headdress topped by a flame, the symbol of his realization of nirvana. The intricate decoration is extensive; patterns of crossed lines on the garment are punctuated with colored glass roundels which retain much of their original light. The figure sits in an informal posture; his feet are gathered under him and can be seen emerging from beneath the elaborate garments. A quality of purity and innocence beams from this statue. In contrast to the rigid formality of the figure, the face is modeled with vitality and sensitivity to earthly charm. The countenance of the bodhisattva is alert, youthful and open, with soft ridges at the eyebrows, full cheeks, a long thick nose and a full-lipped curving mouth with traces of red paint. This is a work full of life and an unusual freshness of spirit.
