Arte Indiana A copper alloy standing Buddha figure in
Item Details
Description
Indian Art A copper alloy standing Buddha figure in the late Gupta styleIndia, late 19th century or earlier . . Cm 35,50. A large natural patina bronze Buddha sculpture. Standing with his right hand raised and the left one in abhaya mudra ("gesture of courage"). Copper alloy heavy cast figure, characterized by the extreme smoothness of the surface that enhances the soft volumes of the limbs. The revolutionary aesthetic canon employed in this type of representations is named Sarnath style and flourished in the Uttar Pradesh region in the 6th-7th century according to a series of stone sculptures characterized by a smooth and polished surface with a general attenuation of any draping effect of the garments. A notable bronze sculpture in the Sarnath style is undoubtedly the colossal "Buddha of Sultaganj", now in the Birmingham Museum (UK) dating back to the 6th-8th century in the region currently occupied by the state of Bihar, at the border with Nepal, and which seems to be the model for numerous smaller sculptures found in that region.
