The Chiang Saen style Buddha is sitting in the Earth Touching, Calling the Earth to Witness, or The victory over (Subduing) Mara position. He sits with folded legs (right on top of the left). The Chiang Saen style Buddha is seated on an interesting representation of a boat. The boat is decorated with flowing designs. Each side comes up in a stylized point much like the royal boats that paddle on the river Choa Praya in Bangkok during royal river processions. This Buddha is in the Chiang Saen or Lanna style. The Chiang Saen or Lanna style (between 11th and 18th centuries A.D.) was influenced by the styles of the Khmer, Sukhothai, India, Burma and Sri Lanka. The first thing one sees about this style is the orb shaped finial which looks like a lotus bud on the top of the head of the Buddha. The face is round and smiling, with high curving highbrows, a hooked nose and mostly narrow lips. The eyes are down cast as if in meditation. The Buddha has a wealth of curls on his head which look like snail shells. His earlobes are stretched.
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.
