This is a very early Thai or Burmese terra cotta Buddha panel or brick that was probably originally in a wall in a temple. While there are many small terracotta Buddha plaques, I have not had a complete example of this type before. There is obvious wear and some minor ships,, but this is in exceptionally good condition for this kind of piece. It is large at over 7 and 1/2 inches wide by six and 1/2 inches high by close to one and a half inches deep. It stands up on it's own and does not need a base. This is an extremely uncommon one.
