A Thai bronze head and torso of a Buddha

The Buddha gazes serenely downwards from almond shaped eyes and high, arched brows, the full lips in a gentle smile, ears with long, pendulous lobes frame his narrow face, a thin band separates the face from the neat rows of curls of hair, partial ushnisha rises from the crown of the head.

H: 8 in.

Provenance: Acquired from Lee & Sons, Art D'Asie du Sud-Est, Paris, December 20, 1986
Property from a private collection, Chester County, Pennsylvania
