Ayutratt

17th-18th C. AYUTTHAYA BUDDHA

The collector from whom I bought this thinks it may be as early as 17th century.  I think it may be slightly later, and that it represents a transitional style between the Ayutthaya and early Rattanakosin period.  The mudra is the Dhyana (meditation), which is also unusual among Thai buddhas.  It is 9 tall, and the gilding is 90% intact.
