Thai Gilt Bronze Artifact
Sukhothai Buddha
Siam, circa: 16th century
H 4.5 in.(11cm.), W 2 in.(5cm.), D 2 in.(5cm.)
MEASUREMENT INCLUDING WOOD BASE IS 6" H

Condition: very good

This beautiful head is imbued with the esthetic values of the Sukhothai period, emphasizing the spirituality of the Buddha by etherealizing his physical form. A Buddha of the Sukhothai is majestic in serene simplicity, conforming to the defining marks set out in ancient Pali texts including “skin so smooth that dust cannot stick…head like an egg…hair like scorpion stings…nose like a parrot’s beak…earlobes lengthened by the earrings of royalty…eyebrows like drawn bows.” The Sukhothai convention of projecting arcs for the eyebrows is seen; the brows meet in the center and form a ridge that runs to the tip of the nose, which is finely modeled in distinct detail. The mouth bears a slight smile with dimpled corners. The flame atop the bun is described in pleasingly simple curves. Traces of paint remain that define the whites of the eyes. Most of the heavy gilding is intact, with spots of oxidation of a rich jade green. --RW
