Burmese Bronze Ava Style Buddha Statue seated on a stepped throne with a beaded pattern decorating the edge of the pedestal. The Face shows a beautiful, serene expression, with high arched eyebrows, eyes downcast, earlobes touching the shoulders, a short pointed rounded usnisha, peppercorn protrusions representing hair curs, and wearing a simple monks robe.
Very nice proportions on this Ava-style Buddha statue with nicely shaped hands in the Bhumisparsa mudra, referred to as the earth-touching mudra. It was during the Ava period that Buddhist iconography reached its peak of perfection from which the crafting of Buddha statues developed and evolved into a variety of styles which are uniquely Burmese, many of them referred to as the Ava style Buddha.
