Walking Buddha


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Walking Buddhas were only a minor part of the Ayutthaya bronze repertory, but they were consistently depicted in stucco in the niches of the Ayutthaya "prang." The bronze is conceived with the left arm following the contour of the body and the pleat between the legs displaying a simple curve.
