18TH C. BRONZE LAOTIAN BUDDHA
On the most recent trip to Asia, I was fortunate to find a number of excellent Laotian buddhas, of which this is one example. It is a folk style, with a powerful face and lovely hard brown patina which looks better in person. It stands 10 inches high. There is a slight ding to the finial, and loss to the base as pictured. If my apartment were not already overrun with Laotian buddhas, I would keep it. I think any buyer will bond very strongly to this piece, with its strength and soulfulness.
