Rare Bronze Ayutthaya Standing 'Crowned' Buddha. 16th C.

Description: A magnificent bronze fragmented statue of a provincial style Ayutthaya Crowned Buddha, from the first half of the sixteenth century. Severed at the mid-section, the fragmented image remains in its original state as found, with the exception of the re-attachment (lead repair) of the right arm. The sculpture is modeled with precise detailing, balance, and aesthetic alignment, as should be for authentic images produced during the Ayutthaya period.

The image stands errect in a strong frontal posture, displaying the 'Abhaya' mudra, with the right hand raised in the historical gesture of greeting or teaching, while the left hand is positioned at his side in perfect alignment with the outter garment. The symmetrically arranged figure is modeled with a somewhat flattened profile, covered by the barest hint of a robe, a smooth clinging diaphanous garment, which covers both shoulders and is indicated by a incised line at the neck. A belt is secured at the waist with a central pleat draping down the front (to what would have been) the bottom hem.

The face with exacting details, depicts a serene meditative expression with down-cast eyes open, arched eyebrows indicated by incision, join in the middle above an aquiline nose, well shaped with an insipid smile, and un-adorned elongated earlobes stop short of the shoulders. The head is adorned with a 'Mukuta' style crown, surmounted by a domed-shaped 'Ushnisha', consisting of three graduated round-edged sections divided by rings, and which terminate into a gem radiance finial. The crown itself is ornamented with projecting flanges at both sides, and incised wire-like designs of cross-hatch diamond patterns. At the back, below the major band is a plate covering the lower part of the head, bearing curved incised swirl patterns.

Casted in the lost wax method, the metal is relatively thin, light in weight, resulting from the thickness of the original wax skin layer, applied to the clay core, prior to the actual casting. The metal is gauged at approximately 0.15cm thickness, which is typical in Ayutthaya images.The entire surface has a even, well balanced, naturally aged dark brownish-gray patina, with traces of malachite growth on the surface. The inner core, consisting of tempered clay is visible at the fragmented base of the sculpture.

Data Observation: Metal is gauged at approximately 0.15cm thickness; Tempered clay core; Object broken off at the mid-section; Lead repair at the right arm; and Right index finger tip missing. Please view detailed photos for overall quality and minor imperfections of the item.
