A gilt lacquered bronze figure of the reclining Buddha

Bangkok, Ratanakosin period, 1782-1851, Thailand

This reclining image is generally the symbol of Parinirvana, which is the ultimate aim of Buddhism, ending the cycles of rebirth. The Buddha lies on a rectangular platform made up of various levels all profusely decorated with floral ornamentation, the uppermost platform embellished with a row of elaborate lotus leaves. The figure is dressed in an ornate embroidered robe that leaves the right arm and shoulder bare, the hand of which supports the head, the latter bearing a charming smile, pendant ear lobes and hair formed into tight curls, the eyes open and inlaid with shell.

The original lacquer gilding on the bronze is in good condition.
Most of those large figures appear in wood, and it is quite rare and unusual to find such a large bronze.
