Right hand raised in jnana (teaching) mudra, this Burmese bronze Buddha sits in lotus position on a double lotus throne. The Buddha's thumb and index finger form a circle to signify the Buddhist wheel of law, the dharmachakra. This early 20th century Buddha is Ava in style, with the body tilting slightly forward on a waisted lotus throne that is tall relative to the height of the figure. The simple, unadorned robe leaves one shoulder bare, and the hair is separated from the face with a narrow band. The tip of the raised thumb on the right hand appears to have been worn shiny, perhaps by repeated touching. Eyes are downcast in meditation. This Buddha is in excellent condition. Dimensions: height 9-1/2" (24 cm), width 4-1/2" (11 cm), depth 3" (8 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
