Vintage Brass Buddha with Aureole, Nepal$790.00
This fine vintage brass Nepalese Buddha Shakyamuni sculpture with traditional ushnisha and urna stands with his hip flexed to the right similar to a contrapposto posture, weight supported on a single leg suggesting movement. With both hands in teaching mudra he wears a thin, close-fitting monks robe in the “wet style”. His elaborate regal pedestal has a removable aureole with a pierced wheel of the dharma above two Buddhist protective lions facing inward. This piece is elegant in its simplicity and expresses the Buddha’s refined and restrained meditative spirituality.
