Standing Buddha


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This bronze may be one of the older images of the standing crowned Buddha; among the features that may be considered ealy are the crown with marked points on the temples, the narrow eyes, the simple necklace, and the sparsely jeweled belt and pleat. The presence of three pendants at the back, however, is a common feature on bronzes dating from later in the century.
