Seated Buddha

A bronze seated Buddha, with the right hand in bhumisparsa mudra and the left resting in his lap. The eyes lowered in deep meditation.The uttarasangha covers the left shoulder and it hangs down to the navel in an inverted V form. The face has a serene expression. The snail-like curls cover the head and ushnisha, which ends in an inserted ketumala with a flame. Gilded with some green encrustations, a sign that th epiece had been excavated. This Buddha is rendered in the Kampaeng Phet style, with suble differences from the neighboring Sukhothai region. The facial features are sharper, the eyebrows form a continuous line above the bridge of the nose, the flame finial is meticulously composed by three layers in stead of four layers, the elegant fingers are elongated, the curls are smaller, the fishtail hem above the navel is shorter.
