This impressive BUDDHA Figure stands 16 1/2" in height and is 6 1/2" in width with a depth of 4". The extensive wear to the base suggests the Buddha may come from a burial tomb. There is some wear to the Gilt paint but the fact that it is not severe makes us believe the piece 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. We have dated this Buddha as 19th century but it could of course be considerably older.
