Very nice decorative Burmese Antique Mandalay Wood Buddha Statue with stone eyes, with an ornately decorated robe extending over both shoulders and over the left knee ending in decorative frills. Glass pieces form a medallion on the centre of the forehead with a row of white glass and a row of green glass mosaics in decorating the forehead ending on both sides above the ears and rounded usnisha.
The Buddha is seated on a single lotus pedestal decorated with glass mosaics and thayo lacquer and plain on the back. The Hand gesture is in bhumisparsa mudra “Calling earth to witness”.
The base has been hollowed out we assume to repair a couple of splits in the wood, although it isn’t visible on the outside. This can be seen in the bottom picture where black lacquer paint can be seen inside the base, none the less this is a beautiful old Burmese antique Mandalay Buddha statue that has been considered worthy of restoration.
