Bronze Buddha Statue , Thailand 19th century

Statue of the Buddha in a sitting posture in dhyana or "attitude of meditation".Lacquered and gilded bronze (gold symbolizing) Shakyamuni's golden complexion, but more broadly as the equivalent of light).
When it was decided to represent Gautama Shakyamuni Buddha in human form at the beginning of the Christian era, symbolic gestures were associated with the main episodes of his life. The gesture of meditation (dhyana-mudra) is characteristic of two periods of meditation during Shakyamuni's life: during his period of extreme fasting ,and under the bodhi tree before his awakening, his thumbs placed one on top of the other.
The cloak is simple, not enhanced with floral motifs, yet we are in the presence of the Rattanakosin style, sometimes called "Bangkok style".
Note the very stylized dimple of the chin is not very common.
Mother-of-pearl eyes.
Thailand .19th c.
Base missing , lacquer chips.
