LORD BUDDHA WITH ARCH


The present lot depicts the Buddha seated below an intricately carved arch. He is shown with his right hand reaching for the ground in the bhumisparsha or "earth-touching" mudra, a gesture that represents the moment in his awakening when he calls upon the earth to witness his enlightenment. Medieval Nepal had a rich heritage of bronze casting, with a majority of the sculptures produced being Buddhist in theme.
