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. This Buddha statue has been re-gilded but not recently. Thayo lacquer decorates the edges of the robe and again on the head to depict curls. Some damage to the curls around the hairline.
This is a Buddha statue with a lot of character despite its flaws, a genuinely old Burmese Buddha Statue seated on a single lotus pedestal. The eyes and eyebrows more than likely re-painted at a later time. Not sure if the lines in the right arm are old cracks or seam lines, hard to tell.
