    SKU:M751

    £1,850

    A gilded teak standing Mandalay Buddha from Burma crafted towards the end of the 19th century and the middle of the Mandalay period. This standing Buddha is made in the traditional way in carved and red lacquered teak wood with gilt finishing. He is in the iconic Mandalay style wearing traditional Burmese attire with painted glass eyes, his robes are inlaid with semi-precious stones. He stands on a lotus flower mounted on a modern black granite base. 


    Standing in traditional Mandalay buddha form in samabhanga posture with his left hand holding his robe and his right hand forming the vitarka mudra whilst holding the fruit of the myrobalan, a bitter medicinal fruit. The myrobalan fruit is often seen held by Mandalay Buddhas.

     

    His uttarasanga (robes of fully ordained Buddhist monks) hangs closed covering his arms and chest. The antaravasaka (a Buddhist undergarment) can be seen on the waist. The sanghati (the outer robe hanging from the shoulder) falls in folds from his left shoulder.
