Description The U Thong Style Buddha is seated on a triangular base that is unique in that it has three legs that hold it off the ground by 4 inches. The Buddha is seated in the earth touching gesture with his right hand reaching for the ground. It was the gesture he took just before he was enlightened. He was asking the earth to bear witness to his enlightenment. His face is square shaped with a slight smile. His ear lobes are long. This is from his princely youth when he wore heavy jeweled earrings. The Buddha has a flame finial rising from the top of his head. The statue has a very dark antique patina with some copper coloring mixed in.
Care

Brass statues from Thailand do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

"You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup."

You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.  If you are really interested in making the statue shine you can use some natural oil, like coconut oil or olive oil, and a cotton rag to wipe down the metal portions of the piece.  You can use a toothbrush as well to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

Thai brass's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The metal can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture every couple of months so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture and then use a cotton cloth with some natural oil to give the statue a shine.
