Enquire
An exceptional 19th Century representation of a very jovial reclining Buddha. He has been skillfully carved in a Fruit or Walnut Burl that now displays a rich and luxurious Patina than can only be obtained from generations of careful and tender handling.  His exuberant energy is portrayed through his exquisitely rendered expressions with details including Polished Ivory Teeth and Shining inlaid eyes. The Laughing Buddha is derived from Buddha Maitreya, the Buddha of the future, full of abundance and goodwill and granting fulfilment of every desire - with one hand in his treasure purse while the other holds up a large wish-fulfilling coin.  He sits on his own carved plinth and together they measure 28cm tall.  There are some age-related faults to be expected but otherwise, he has survived in very good condition.
