Extremely fine 17th/18th century Laos bronze Buddha. From the lifelong collection of a world traveller and international rug dealer. I purchase six Lao Buddha from his estate, all of superb quality - several of which will be listed in concert with this one. Everything about it is in perfect balance from the very sweet face to the near perfect patina to the exquisite base with inscription. I especially love the extremely fine, expressive hands-you won't find better ones a Buddha costing 10 times as much as this one.
