INDIA. INDONESIA. JAPAN. LANKA. LAO. THAILAND. TIBET. Title: Bronze Lopburi Meditating Sakyamuni Buddha Interlocking Sanctuary, Khmer Influence. Temple Relic. 19/20th Century. Description: An exquisite 19th to 20th century example of a bronze Sakyamuni Buddha, with Khmer influence, recovered from an old temple in the Lopburi province of north central Thailand. xxxIngeniously created, this altar-like sanctuary is intricately modeled into interlocking pieces, consisting of the main support elevated by two highly detailed geometric sections, supporting a double lotus in which Buddha sits. Behind the image is another separate shroud of columns rising to a floral archway. All of which can be cleverly re-arranged into different styles as presented in our photos. Image Details: A sublime Buddha portrayed seated in meditation on a double lotus, elevated on an interlocking altar and shrouded sanctuary. He sits in the 'Virasana' pose, with one leg atop the sole of the other foot. The hands display the 'Dhyana' mudra, the attainment of spiritual perfection, gesture, with both hands overlapping one another and open-palms lying upwards. The figure is modeled with a narrow profile, wearing a long monastic robe in the 'Closed Mode', covering both shoulders. Typical of Lopburi images with Khmer influence, the face is square, displaying a serene downcast expression, defined by delicately rendered semi-closed eyes. Arched and connected eyebrows meet above a prominent nose, a well shaped mouth with thick lips, dimpled chin, and elongated earlobes with triangular earring pendants drapted to his shoulders. The head is covered in vertical rows of tightly braided hair, bound by an inter-connected diadem, surmounted by a conical-shaped ushnisha, rising to a small bulbous ornament finial. The bronze alloy has a dark chocolate brown patina, overlayed with green malachite oxidation, and encrusted soil deposits embedded on the surface, showing minor wear. Lopburi - Though one of the oldest city in today's north central Thailand, Lopburi was at the time a mid size provincial town, developed during the 6th to 10th centuries, when it was known as "Lavo". During this period the Lopburi Art was influenced by Pala or Indian style. Between the 10th to 11th centuries Lopburi came under the influence of the Khmer Empire, and thus its culture and art gradually reflected some of Khmer's art style. Origin:xxxxxxxxx Temple District.
