This is an exceptional Buddha that is probably from Laos, although the face and head have strong echoes of Cambodia. The face has a depth and sweetness not often encountered. The base was long ago replaced with a terracotta one: it may be original to the piece, or may be a centuries old modification. If the piece is Cambodian, it may have had a separately cast lead base. Either way, it looks great the way it is. Stands a bit under six inches tall. An exceptional piece.
