Standing Buddha


Description Provenance Credit
Description With an oval face, high arched brows, and eyes that compassionately look downwards, this Buddha raises his left hand in the gesture of reassurance. His tiered crown and bejeweled clothing with flaring hanging panels recall Thai royal dress. In Southeast Asia, crowned Buddhas may allude to the story of Jambupati, in which the Buddha assumes the appearance of the magnificent “Supreme King of Kings,” to subdue the arrogant King Jambupati. Not all crowned Buddhas, however, directly connect to this narrative; in some cases, regally attired Buddhas are dedicated to deceased royalty.
