Laotian Buddha 18-19c
Price: $1850.00
This antique gold gilt wood Buddha is depicted in a gesture found only in Laos, referred to as "Calling for Rain" or “Calling the Rain Over a Kingdom Affected by Drought” where he stands with his hands held outwards symmetrically at his side. The image stands on a very high multitiered and round base which is as tall as the carved image which rests on it. One of the widely accepted canons in Buddhist art in Laos is that a high pedestal reflects a deep and unwavering respect for the Buddha.
24" x 6.5" round base
