  • There are 16 attendants and animals in this richly layered bronze statue featuring a Kashmiri style Buddha with halo in the bhumisparsha mudra or the earth touching gesture
  • Bangladeshi bronze statues are extremely rare. Lotus Sculpture is the only company who carries them. Soon, we fear, there will be no more Hindu bronze artists in Muslim Bangadesh so this is an opportunity to have a piece of history
  • This Kashmiri Buddha statue is a one of a kind, lost wax method, bronze statue. Only one of these statues is ever made
Description Few Indian Bronzes can compare with this example for its compositional complexity, richness of details and technical sophistry.  Especially noteworthy is the treatment of the rocks; this particular stylized formula was a hallmark of Kashmiri bronzes.  Another notable feature is the rich inlay of the Buddha's cushion.  Taken from; "The Great Tradition of Indian Bronze Masterpieces"

In total there are 16 figures in depicted in this fabulous and active bronze.  The peice is broken out in three layers.  The bottom layer consisting of the animal domain complete with two playful lions.  The second layer consists of devotees of the Buddha and the third layer consisting of the Buddha.  The piece seems to be a rendition of the artist's world view.

It is wonderful to see the differences between the Kashmiri school and the Pala and Chola schools of bronze casting.
