LARGE 18TH C. WALKING SUKHOTHAI BUDDHA
Try as I might, I simply could not get a really good picture of this buddha. It is significantly more attractive than the picture. The complex burial patina does not render well. I have included below a picture of the face so that you may see the complexity and beauty better. This buddha belonged to a retired official who supervised excavations many years ago. This buddha is very substantial, at 28 inches tall and very heavy. Walking Sukhothais are the most graceful of all Thai buddhas.
