6/7th C. Korean Buddha of the Future. Head is Missing

This is perhaps the most classic of all early Korean Buddhist sculpture- -A body of 'the Buddha of the future' sitting in the European position in quiet reflection. This form first appeared in Gandhara in the third/ fourth centuries,  and migrated to China and Korea just a few centuries later. This places it in the period which I believe this sculpture comes from- 6/7th centuries, plus or minus a century or two. under high magnification, the metal and gilding look absolutely ancient. Sits 4.5" tall, 6.75 inches on its custom stand. Very rare and powerful even without its head
