A VERY LARGE AND IMPRESSIVE BRONZE BUDDHA SEATED ON A SPLENDID SPIKED THRONE, SOUTH EAST ASIA, LIKELY 19TH. CENTURY AD.
The buddha is massive and seated on a high throne with tail-like spikes protruding from both his knees and the throne. He is holding a lotus in his left hand.
The figure is rather massive and is filled in the bottom. It's difficult for us to establish a certain age on the piece, it could be very old or it could be not so old, if it had been standing in the rain outside a temple.
Height: 46 cm.
Weight: 9,7 kilograms!
Condition: Choice and intact, fine natural brown patina with greenish encrustations.
