A huge bronze Bouddha on his base , Thailand,2nd half of the 19th c.

Large Buddha in lacquered and gilt bronze, in the position of the "Bhumisparsa mùdra", or the earth witness mudra.
This posture represents the Enlightenment of Buddha, and holds a great place in the Thai imagery, because it symbolizes the victory over Mâra, god of the desires, death and the demons. He thus reaches the enlightenment under the tree of the Bodhi.
This gesture appears to the Thai people as the illustration of the greatest of miracles, and represents the peak of Buddha's life.
Rare in these dimensions, and especially with its base.
Style of Rattanakosin, 2nd half of the 19th c.
Some chips and lacks.
