|Inscriptions cover the left and back sides of the throne under this 18th century seated Burmese Shan Buddha. Made of lacquered wood coated with gilt, the figure is graceful and well proportioned, with a finely carved face. Long, tilted eyes under high eyebrows that sweep upward toward the hairline are the most arresting features of the peaceful face, which is smoothly capped in dark lacquer and topped with an exceptionally tall finial. Hands and robe details are simple and realistic; the feet, depicted soles up, are stylized and add a jaunty aspect to the otherwise traditional figure. The gilt coating on the Buddha and on the throne is worn. The Buddha is in very good condition; the throne is damaged on the bottom--see photo enlargements #6 and #9. Dimensions: height 11 1/2" (29 cm), width 3" (8 cm), depth 2 3/4" (7 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM|
