ANtique PRIMITIVE EARLY Buddha Architectural BRONZE
This is one of the earliest forms of Buddha and the one I am selling is a very old primitive bronze from earlier periods. The face has a well-formed forehead and high cheek-bones, downcast eyes, aquiline nose, small mouth and pointed chin In keeping with the Pagan schema, the ears do not touch the shoulder The clothing on the body has a wet appearance and the outer garment looks as if it is part of the arms. There are three folds across the stomach and a line dividing the garment between the legs. The knee caps are visible through the clothing. As in the few bronze images that have lasted thru the years, the pleating around the periphery of the robe is stiff and stylized. The hands are raised before the breast in the dharmacakra or preaching position. The stance this statue takes comes from the years 1044-1287 . Notice the back hair with the high coiled chignons. This has a metal rod that comes from the back where it would have been placed into another piece of architectural metal. This measures 3 ¾ long and is in great condition.
