Subject:Wooden Buddha statue (Indonesia?)
Posted By: Argentina Thu, Jun 17, 2021 IP: 18.104.22.168
Hello everyone. I purchased this wooden buddha statue a while ago, from the estate of an old couple that lived a significant part of their life in Indonesia (fascinating sale, their house was packed with interesting things). There, i acquired this wooden buddha which at the time was identified as Balinese. While it was clearly painted originally, most of the paint has faded away on the fron (gold and red paint still visible on some sections, particularly on the back). Does this actually look like a Balinese statue? Any ideas on age? Suggestions on how to explore this further? No interest in selling, just fascinated by this statue and trying to find out as much as possible...thank you!
