Description Although the position of the hand might suggest that this image was made earlier, 13th-century bronzes seem to offer nothing really close in expression. The firmness and sobriety of this expression suggest a sculptor so out-of-tune with the times that he is something of a scold. This image may be the product of an ethnically distinct workshop, maintaining ties to the Khmer tradition.
The Standing Buddha had active chloride corrosion that was treated locally using the corrosion inhibitor, benzotriazole.
