A rare Siam 18th. century Ayutthaya style gilt bronze Buddha sits with legs crossed, right hand in Abhaya Mudra, the energy of no fear gesture, left hand in the mudra of meditation.
Abhaya is translated from Sanskrit as fearlessness. The Abhaya mudra is made with the open palm of the right hand extending outwards at the chest level or slightly higher. If you look at this Buddha hand gesture, or mudra, you will also feel the energy of protection, peace and a sense of strong, deep inner security.
The Buddha contains traces of gilt and is decorated in the style often seen during the Ayutthaya Period (14th-17th century). Age: 18th - 19th century.
