A deeply, well cast bronze old gilded Buddha from Burma with a serene expression.

A heavy cast bronze coated with a gilded lacquer. Green patina from age shows on the statue where the gilded lacquer has flaked off. The Buddha is in a restive, meditative, seated pose with fingers up.

There are no marks or labels but there is sand and grit from the molding process on the base.

13 1/4"" (33.7 cm) tall x 9 1/2"" (24.1 cm) wide x 5 3/4"" (14.6 cm) deep
Weighs 12 lb 5.6 oz (5.60 kg)

The gilding is missing in many areas, and many of those areas are green. The gold is also worn in spots showing the black lacquer below. There are no cracks, breaks, or dents. The Buddha has a nice aged, entire look.

A serene, artistic, antique Buddha that will add age, richness and substance to your décor. It is very striking.
