Very Old Hand Carved Wooden BUDDHA -Thailand Circa 19th Century

This beautifully hand carved wooden BUDDHA Figure stands 12" in height and is 7" in width with a depth of 4". The extensive wear to the base suggests the Buddha may come from a burial tomb. There are traces of the original Gilt paint but the actual carved wood definition other than the base is still excellent so we believe the piece has been buried and has not been exposed to the outside elements. Whilst Buddhists are mainly cremated many are also buried and it is common for the 'authorities' to exhume graves after many years and remove the remains to 'free-up' the land for further burials and usage. We have dated this Buddha as 19th century but it could of course be considerably older.
