    An antique Thai style seated Sukhothai Buddha from Thailand.

    The Sukhothai Buddha statues represent one of the most celebrated forms of Buddhist art in Thailand. Originating from the Sukhothai Kingdom, which flourished between the 13th and 15th centuries, these statues are renowned for their graceful and distinctive style that reflects the spiritual and cultural ethos of the era.

    The Sukhothai Buddha statues emerged during this period, embodying the kingdom's artistic innovation and spiritual devotion. These statues were not only religious icons but also symbols of the kingdom’s identity and artistic achievement.

    The face of the Sukhothai Buddha is marked by a gentle and serene expression, with a slight smile that conveys inner peace and compassion. The features include a broad forehead, arched eyebrows, downcast eyes, a prominent nose, and full lips.

    The bodies profile is with broad shoulders and slender waist, covered by a Sanghati robe worn diagonally over the left shoulder, and is graced by a heavily pleated flap draped to the navel, marked with a fishtail shaped notch. The right shoulder is left bare.

    The Buddha features heart shaped face, with almond shaped downcast eyes. Curved eyebrows meet above a prominent nose, and contoured lips with an exalted expression, appear smiling. The shell like curls of the hair form a heart shaped line around the face, surmounted by a hemispherical ushnisha, topped by a flamed ornamental finial, symbolizing his high level of spiritual development. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings.

    The Buddha is seated on a pedestal in the Bhumisparsa or 'Calling the Earth to Witness' mudra. With fingers slightly touching the ground this position represents the subduing of Mara (a demon) who bombarded Buddha with demons, monsters, violent storms and the three seductive daughters. Remaining steadfast the Buddha testified to his meritorious past by pointing to the earth and calling the Earth Goddess, Thorani.

    Rising from the ground the Earth Goddess wrings the water from her long black hair.  By this action she raises a torrential flood that drowns Mara and his army of demons. This gesture reflects this story symbolizing enlightenment, as well as steadfastness and Buddha's achievement of perfection or nirvana.

    The Sukhothai Buddha statues represent a pinnacle of Thai artistic and spiritual heritage. Their graceful proportions, serene expressions, and dynamic poses reflect the profound spiritual values of the Sukhothai Kingdom and the innovative spirit of its artists.

    As symbols of serenity, compassion, and enlightenment, these statues continue to inspire and captivate, offering a timeless connection to the rich cultural and spiritual traditions of Thailand.

    This traditional in appearance piece is sure to add a unique touch to any room of your home or workplace.

    One of the most recognizable of the Asian deities this representation of the spiritual teacher Buddha is sure to enlighten your home with endlessly timeless style.
