Title: Antique Burmese Mandalay Period Standing Buddha. Wood-carved. Myanmar
Impressive Burmese Mandalay Buddha. Myanmar. Height: 90.17cm
Description: A superb 19th century Sacred Temple Statue of an unusual Burmese
Standing Buddha, considered to be one of the early representations of the
Buddha from the Mandalay Period. Hand-carved from auspicious Teakwood, the
figure is depicted standing with feet firmly planted on a small round lotus
plinth, in the Gesture of Meditation, performed with both hands outstretched at
both sides in mudra, while holding the medicinal 'Myrobalan' fruit in the right
hand. As with Mandalay style images the face is oval, with a wide forehead and
pointed chin, arched eyebrows connect above downcast inlaid glass eyes, a
straight nose with flared nostrils, and a small distinct mouth. Buddha's head
is covered by small hair curls surmounted by a hemispherical 'Ushnisha', domed
at the top. Buddha is clothed in a elegantly carved 'Uttarasanga' robe worn in
the 'Closed' mode covering both shoulders, and draped with a long undulating
end flap folded decoratively to the mid-section. The 'Antaravasaka' covers the
body from the waist to the knees. The contoured body is completely lost under
his heavy robe that is deeply undercut and has multiple layered folds inset at
the bottom hem. As with traditional Mandalay Period Buddha figures his garment
is featureless at the back.
The figure is well proportioned and intricately carved with detailed
features, decorated with Thayo lacquer, inlaid glass, mirrors, and hand-painted
in a maroon lacquer pigment with remnants of gold gilding.
