This is an early 20th century gilt wood and lacquer Buddha. The Buddha is seated with legs crossed and the left hand resting in the lap with an open palm facing upwards. The right hand is resting on the right knee, pointed towards the ground. This pose is often referred to as Calling the Earth to Witness and is one of the most common poses found in Thai temples. It is the definition of the moment of enlightenment for the Buddha. The eyes of the Buddha are nearly all the way closed and the statue is shaped - more or less- like a triangle which represents stability. It measures approximately 27" tall, 10.25" at the widest point, and 8" at the deepest point. It is in good overall condition with some minor mentionables: there are some natural cracks in the wood, as to be expected with age. Also, there are some small areas of loss to the finish at the back of the base, exposing the wood beneath, as shown in the pictures. The lotus bud on the top of the head was carved separately and is removable.
