Large Walking Sukhothai Buddha Amulet cast in Copper alloy and dating from the 18thC . Example on the right is still available.Walking Buddha sculpture flourished in Thailand’s Sukhothai kingdom during the 14th and 15th centuries. The Buddha, born Prince Sidartha, renounced his wealth and spent the rest of his life teaching throughout northern India. The Suhkothai Buddha image portrayed him simply and elegantly, with his heel lifted and eyes lowered, practicing walking meditation. Walking is one of four postures prescribed for meditational exercises in ancient Theravada Buddhist texts. Sukhothai artists were the first to create walking Buddha sculptures fully in the round. From a good collection we have just purchased.
