Antique bronze figure of Maravijaya Buddha, from Thailand (Lan Na province) in Sukhothai post-classic style circa 14th/15th century. Gracefully seated with legs folded in the hero pose, exposing the sole of his well-modeled right foot resting in the crook of his left leg in paryankasana position on a simple shaped base. The hands are cast with long elegant fingers like lotus flowers just begining to open, with fingertips curled back with curved nails like petals, the right hand in bhumisparsa mudra near the knee over the top of the right shin known as the earth touching position or subduing Mara. The left hand is in dhyana mudra, resting in the center of his lap and at the heel of his right foot. He wears a diaphanous layered sanghati outlined with ridges at the wrist, waist, knees ankles and across his torso leaving his right arm uncovered and revealing a pronounced nipple. The garment is smoothly draped over his squared and rounded shoulders with arms firm and rounded like the trunk of an elephant, and with the robe edge folded over with reversing inflection, resembling a shawl over the left shoulder and terminating in elegantly pleated folds. The face is in a calm meditative expression with downcast incised eyes beneath high arched brows and fine long aquiline nose, the lips incised in an enigmatic smile. The ears are elongated to the first fold of the neck and the top corners slightly peaked. The hair is rendered with a V hairline echoing the arch of the brow with large snail shell curls in rows and three tiers for the ushnisha, topped by a 3-layered flame finial which is symbolic of the Buddha’s radiant energy. The overall patina is of dark brown tone with subtle red copper patches.  

Figure measures: 13 in. high x 9-1/4 in. wide x 5 in. deep. The stand measures 1-3/4 in. high x 10-1/4” wide x 6-3/4 in. deep.

Figure weighs: 6 lb. 15 oz. Total weight including base: 8 lbs. 14 oz.
