Dated to the mid-19th century during the Rattanakosin dynasty, this serene standing Buddha figure is intricately cast in bronze and decorated with gold leaf. The standing figure is costumed in bejeweled robes reminiscent of Thai royal attire and wears a tall flame-like crown. This spiked crown is known as an ushnisha, and signifies wisdom and the spiritual power of the Buddha's enlightenment. The Buddha holds both his hands outwards in the abhaya mudra, a gesture of protection and fearlessness known in Thailand as "Calming the Waters."

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
