AB 002 – Thai Buddha Half Body

Size (L x W x H):
13 x 6,5 x 17,4 cm

This Buddha is made in the style of Thailand Buddha figures. It is the likeness of the Buddha, born as Siddhartha Gautama, the initiator of Buddhism. He is wearing a monk’s robe which covers both shoulders; he has the typical evenly twisted curls and the protuberance on top of his head, “ushnisha”. The ushnisha is prolonged and looks like a flame to symbolize the fiery energy of his intellect. This attribute can be found since the late 13th century, with the beginning of the Sukhothai period.
