Crowned Buddha

17th-early 18th C AD



Alabaster, traces of red soil

H 54 cm

This crowned image has a round slightly triangular face, the brows are accentuated, the eyes are downcast. The nose is straight with flaring nostrils, the mouth is fixed in a gentle serene smile. The neck is very short, as in most Burmese images. The leaf-like kirita (crown) encloses a chignon surmounted by petals and a flame finial (missing). The ears are circular and surrounded by ribbons and a plug inserted. Ribbons flowing from the ears to the shoulder is typical for Arakan. The chest is covered with necklaces. He wears a shawl over the shoulders, with the folds echoed in the circular draping of the robe over the legs locked in the lotus position. The drapery of the textile looks like lace.
