Description

The Buddha sits on a double lotus corolla resting on a throne supported by three lions, which in turn rests on a pedestal flanked by two monks in a devout attitude. The perfection of the casting is typical of the superior technical quality of Lan Na's bronze statuary. The monastic robe with carefully designed folds and without a belt reveals the well-modeled underlying body. The flap of the shawl that hangs from the left shoulder ending in a double "fish tail" stops at the height of the nipple, as is typical of the 16th century Lan Na style. The broad shoulders, the full chest and abdomen, the long and shapely arms, the soft cheeks and chin and the full lips are all typical elements of this style. Uncommon is the presence at the base of the throne of a third lion in the center, next to the two places on the sides that are normally present in this iconography: the roar of the lion (simhanada) evokes the voice of the Buddha who penetrates the space by divulging the Doctrine.
