This is a very lovely and highly sought after Chiang Sien Buddha from Northen Thailand. It has a strong influence from Laos, as the ancient Kingdom of Chiang Sien or Lanna included part of modern day Laos. It has a wonderful countenance and nice quality casting. The face is superb. It was cleaned at some point, and in some points the underlying bronze shows through. There is a casting flaw in the base, which can be seen in the photos- this is not uncommon on such early pieces. This a very nice size at well over 10 inches high. This type has become extremely sought after in recent years.
