Excellent state of preservation

Massive repoussé Buddha, sitting in the padmasana position on a double lotus flower base.
The left hand rests in his lap in the avakasamudra gesture, while the right hand is touching the ground, as a witness of the truth of his words, bhumisparsamudra. The monastic robe he wears is enriched by chiseled phytomorphic decors on the trim. On his face, displaying substantial traces of polychrome pigments, is a serene, hieratic look. One of the hands of the figure was cast: it is modular and can be removed from the sculpture.

Approx. 45.00 x 74.00 x 30.00 cm

Origin:

from a collection in the South of France.
Purchased before 1970.
