Wonderful, very large Northern Thai Buddha from the old kingdom of Nan. Very distinctive small, sweet face. The casting is provincial, and the style is folk- the overall effect is quite successful. He sits an impressive 18.25 inches tall by 10 inches wide at the base. The age is hard to nail down precisely. He is a 16/17th century provincial piece. He is extremely uncommon, and has an extraordinary presence. If he were slightly more of a classic piece, his price would be at least double. Who couldn’t love a face like that?
