Guest Book
a superb 18th century vietnamese buddha several lacquer levels where we found silver sheet on top of gold leaf the buddha comes from the collection of doctor "camboulive"who was director of the veterinarian school who lived in hanoi between 1895 to 1920 the serenity expression of the face is rather rare on vietnamese buddha whose style is rather stereotyped . the surface has traces of use,damages (some parts are very fragile ,and is restorated at the right shoulder one missing hand in spite of the lacks and general state of conservation we can consider this buddha as magnificent and rare a certificate of the expert jean d'estournel accompanies the piece
