Seated Buddha in "Maravijaya"


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This small image follows the Sihing iconography- gem radiance, short mantle, "vajrasana," right hand on the knee. It has few if any of the stylistic qualities of the 15th-16th century manifestations of the Sihing, however. The treatment of the facial features may appear to have a folksy quality, but nevertheless the sculptor is in control of the modeling and quite capable of deciding when a straighforwardly graceful curve is in order and when something more quirky is preferable.
Provenance Thong Lo [vendor], Bangkok; Alexander B. Griswold, Monkton, January 28, 1951, by purchase, [presented to the Breezewood Foundation, 1965, inv. no. 542]; Walters Art Museum, 1992, by bequest.
