Rare Sukhothai Votive Tablet / Yantra mounted onto a decorative gilded metal frame resembling the arches and roof lines in Thai architecture. This clay tablet shows the image of a Sukhothai-style walking Buddha (Phra Leela) with the left arm bent at the elbow and hand extended upwards in Abhaya mudra the gesture of reassurance, with flowing robes typically seen in the Thai walking Buddha relief images in Buddhist votive tablets and Sukhothai Buddha images in the round.

This style of devotional tablet in a frame is usually placed on a temple altar or used during ceremonies. Stamped into the back are sacred geometric diagrams referred to as Yantras, originating from the Hindu-Buddhist traditions of India.
