A very nice classic 18th C Shan Alabaster Seated Buddha Statue with golden brown coloured simple monks robe. Traces of gilding still remain, and traces of pink on the tips of the fingers indicating fingernails.
The Buddha is seen here seated in Vajrasana position on a single lotus pedestal on a narrow plain base with hand gesture in Bhumisparsa Mudra, fingertips touching earth symbolising the moment of enlightenment when he called the Earth Goddess to witness this great event under the bodhi tree, and his defeat over the demon Mara and his army of soldiers.
This Buddha statue originates from Inthein area (Inle Lake) in the beautiful Shan state of Myanmar.
