18th C. BRONZE STANDING LAO BUDDHA

This Buddha is really elegant.  He stands 20 (51cm) tall including the base, which is 1 .    The picture unfortunately does not do justice to the beautiful, smooth, dark brown patina.  [It either reflected too much in the lights, or was too close to the dark background without them.]  However, the patination is uniform.  He has a lovely serene face (ask for a closeup if interested).  Lao buddhas have jumped in price as more people have gotten to appreciate their individuality and more subtle beauty.
