I just wanted to welcome a new member to the Art Blart family – as my best friend said to me, one that will generate much peace and good vibes…

A beautiful 19th century bronze Buddha seated in padmasana (lotus position) on a double lotus base, elongated ears showing “Form of the Awakened One.”
One hand in meditative gesture cradling the base, and the other holding a Lotus Bud.
Flowing wide hair, with an almond shaped mandorla (halo) affixed around the head.
Fine and strong Pompeii Green Patina.
From Wat Pa Ban Tat (temple), Udon Thani Province Central Thailand (note: with all the correct export licences)

Simply divine!

Absolutely divine. In the flesh, the colouring and radiance of these plates has to be seen to be believed.
God they knew how to print back then!

I shall be posting more of these stunning works over the coming weeks. They deserve to be seen and meditated upon. Please click on the artwork for a larger version of the image.
