Ancient Nagapattinam Buddha

Ancient Nagapattinam Buddha

Item Description:

A very large and rare 10/11thC Nagapattinam bronze Buddha (near area and period of Chola in Southern India, though Buddhist rather than Hindu). This is an extremely special and valuable statue, unlike any other I have ever listed. No other of this size has sold at Sotheby's or Christie's since they began putting results on their sites. Height is 20.5" tall (bronze total), 21.5" tall with its custom base, 14" (actual figure), 13.25" (widest point at the base) and 6" (width at hands). Excellent condition for a large near 1,000 year old statue; one nail/finger tip broken, and a few holes in the base. Remarkable patina for such an early South Indian bronze.
