Antique Brass Sukhothai Buddha Statue seated on a lotus throne on top of a two tiered pedestal with the right hand placed over the knee, in Bhumisparsa Mudra, “Calling Earth to Witness” or Victory over Mara. This Mudra represents the moment of enlightenment.
The flame above the usnisha is typically seen of the Sukhothai Buddha image. The flame symbolizes the Buddha’s radiant spiritual energy, the hairline forms a delicate V-shape in the middle of the top part of the brow. The hairline follows the curve of the arched eyebrows underneath which join at the bridge of a largish slightly hooked nose. The elongated earlobes denote the Buddha’s former princely status with broad shoulders and inflated chest.
Thai script on the lower front of the statue may indicate age.
