Ca. 1700s or earlier

Hollow cast in coppery-bronze. Two similar images depict Buddha in “Earth touching” mudra. Both are heavy castings, having an even, dark brown patina and hollow interiors with old brown patina and light traces of verdigris. The backs of both pedestals are cast with a lopp just below the seated Buddha and these were used to secure these two smaller images to a larger altarpiece. Though well-cast, the features are not worked in detail and were probably made for a small provincial temple or household altar. A small hole in the side of one pedestal is the result of a minor casting flaw, otherwise good condition, no breaks or repairs.

Height: 5 1/8 in.
