Ayutthaya period circa Thai Buddha 16th CE small standing Buddha with rare “namaskara” mudra. The head broke from the neck (and subsequently repaired- see enlargements) off revealing a ceramic core and the most of the robe on the left side is missing. This piece will stand on its own but I do suggest that it be propped up or fixed onto something. H: 13.5cm/5.2in.

Alabaster Shan Buddha circa 18th century. This has been left out in the sun and rain for the past 10 years so the surface has begun to degrade (a good lesson in the Buddhist fundamental of Anicca: the impermanence of all things). The head has been reattached. The base is hollow: the only example I have ever seen with this. H: 27cm/10.6in and W: 11cm/4.2in.

Exceptionally rare bronze Burmese/Shan musician which would have been part of Buddhist “nativity ensemble”. These consist of dancers, devotees and musicians celebrating his birth with the young Buddha forming the focal point of the group. Usually these types of images are quite crude and small being placed inside chedis/stupas as a form of merit making and were never meant to be displayed on a Buddhist altar. This one however would have been displayed in private home or temple...

Interesting wood carving of a tiger carrying a woman in its jaws. This relates to an ancient Burmese legend about two brothers (messengers of King Anawathra- founder of Pagan) who fall in love with a young girl who rejects them and so they send a tiger to kill her. If any buyer is interested I can email more info on this. This is circa 19th century there some damage and to the figure of the woman. H: 35cm/13.8in.

Good early 20th CE pair of Lanna style Northern Thai Buddhas. The small one on left is amulet sized (H: 5.2cm/2in) with traces of gold and black lacquer and the larger one is a small votive image (H: 7.2cm/2.8in). Of interest, these are cast in zinc which has a much lower melting temperature than bronze which makes it easier to cast in them large numbers and has a much more pleasing appearance and feel than lead.

As with almost all the ethnic groups from this region in Southeast Asia, local animist and ancestor traditions coexist or are integrated with the predominantly Buddhist religion. This piece came from the Shan State, Burma and is H: 14.7cm5.8in.
