Description

This bronze sculpture of the Buddha’s head conveys the serenity and peacefulness associated with this great religious figure.

His eyes are focused downwards, perhaps looking towards a sacred object he once held or possibly admiring the landscape or temple in which he was once situated.

Maybe the completed sculpture was displayed in a raised altar and the Buddha was intended to gaze down at his followers.

An inner calm and complacency is visible on his face and in his sweet smile. His ears droop down from the weight of heavy ear ornaments. The Buddha’s distinctive tightly curled hairstyle is typical of Thai representations. A flame of enlightenment rises from the top of his head, a symbol of the Buddha’s infinite wisdom.
