Standing Buddha in "Abhayamudra"


Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Ordinary notions of stylistic development would suggest that this image dates earlier, but evidently somewhere there was a conservative workshop that produced images of this type through the 14th and even into the 15th century.
Conservation

The leaded tin bronze has active chloride corrosion from burial. The chloride corrosion or "bronze disease" was treated with a corrosion inhibitor benzotriazole. The relative humidity in the case will be kept at or below 40%.
