Figure of Seated Buddha

This seated Buddha image has the attributes typically associated with the art of the Sukothai period (13th to 15th centuries). These include the flame finial (ushnisha) rising from the head, elegantly curved earlobes, finely arched eyebrows, slender hands and feet, and the flowing lines of the anatomy visible through clinging robes,.The super-human qualities of the Buddha are underscored by the asxeual anatomy. This is thought to reflect Buddha's ability to transcend the world and its dualities.
