18th Century Burmese Alabaster Buddha Statue from Shan state seated in lotus position (virasana with both soles of the feet facing upwards), hand gesture Bhumisparsa mudra.

Over the lifetime of a Buddha statue within the monastery, especially when very old, some are from time to time given a fresh coat of gilding and face repainting. This Buddha statue has been re-gilded but not recently.

Thayo lacquer decorates the edges of the robe, lapel and again on the head to depict curls. Some damage to the curls around the hairline. For the gilding to stick to the stone they are given a coat of lacquer which is dark in colour, in this case a little clumsily as it is visible around the edges of the robe and parts of the stone.

This is a genuinely old Buddha statue with a lot of character.
