This highly decorative Burmese or Indian carved hardwood study of the seated Buddha has been well carved in hardwood. It is decorated with delicate tube lined gesso with multiple small coloured glass disks forming ornamentation on the robes and the headdress. The original gilt finish is displaying some natural wear with the red base coat showing through. The eyes are inlaid in glass, there is evidence of slight cracking to some surfaces which would be caused through handling and natural shrinkage. Circa 1900
