Description The Sukhothai Buddha statue is large, beautiful and very impressive.  Pictures do not do the sheer enormity of the sculpture justice. The Buddha is seated in the earth touching posture which is the pose he took right before his enlightenment when he asked the earth, Gaya to witness his becoming enlightened.  The first thing one sees about this style is the flame shaped finial emerging 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.  His elongated earlobes are from years of Siddhartha wearing heavy earrings in his princely youth.  The coloring of this Buddha is perfect!  He has gold robes and a gold flame finial that are made using real gold leaf. The torso, head, hands, feet and bottom of the base are a deep bronze color that has a beautiful antique patina.  There are red accents on the base that add to the stunning coloring displayed in this beautiful Thai Buddha statue.  This sculpture would work perfectly as the main Buddha in a temple or the  centerpiece of a Buddhist mediation garden.

Sukhothai Style:  Thai Sukhothai art refers to the art and style of the Sukhothai Empire period. It was was inspired by Theravada Buddhism which created a new style in which spiritual serenity is merged with human form and reflected in the numerous images of the Buddha. Sculptors did not base their images on strict human form but on interpretations of metaphors from religious verse and Pali language scriptures.



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.
