17th – 18th Century Burmese Arakan Wood Buddha Statue with a tiered crown and green glass coloured mosaics. Thayo lacquer and mosaic decoration emphasis the outline of the robe and royal regalia. A large carved pointed finial sits on top of a tiered usnisha with glass mosaics and thayo lacquer decoration decorating the band around the forehead. The Buddha is seen here with painted eyes and long earlobes extending to and touching the shoulders.
The Buddha is seen here seated on a high pedestal with the right hand hand gesture in bhumisparsa mudra, “Calling earth to Witness”.
The thayo lacquer around the crown is brittle through age and chipped in places (see pictures), age related wear to gilding. It is possible this statue was crafted in three sections as there are three distinct cracks indicating that it could have been made in sections.
