Remarkably well done. The posture and hand execution plus the face immediately evokes serenity. Who wouldn't want that in their home?

The figure is actually in two pieces - with a separate lily base. Off the base you can see the hollowness of the figure as well as impressed hallmarks. Interestingly, the view of the inside reveals a couple of things. One is that you can see the finger marks in the clay indicating it was hand made and second, there is an unusual impressed mark next to the reign mark. It is an impressed picture of a foo dog/lion! We think it might indicate the individual who made it, but we have not been able to identify it further.

This Buddha figure was made in the very late Republic Period which ended in 1949. So over 70 years old.

The figure can stand well with or without the base.

There are no defects - no cracks, chips, etc. Excellent condition.

The figure is quite heavy and and because of its height, it will be considered 'oversized' by shippers. It will probably have to go in a 24" x 14" x 14" box to be secure.
