18thC, and possibly earlier, very large and INCREDIBLY heavy Sri Lankan Kandy style (with echoes of much earlier styles). 9.75 inches tall, 11.5 inches on custom stand, almost 10 inches wide at base. Due to the requirement that Lankan Buddhas (for nearly the past 1,000 years) must be solid cast, this is close to as large as the sitting ones get during this period. The face, ears, and elements of the body shape are related to Lankan Buddhas 500 to 800 years earlier. These give this piece a very d...

They also removed the bases from some Buddhas (including this one) during some early periods in Thailand to make other Buddhas due to the scarcity of metal. Even though it is wo...
