Default Buddha No.1.

Hi,
Can you tell me which part of the world this Buddha statue comes from, it is 13 inches (33cm) tall and is hollow cast. Thanks again.
Regards,
Norman.

Thanks for the input chaps, from what I can find on the net it would appear to have more in common with Thai Buddhas than Tibetan Buddhas but I'm still looking.
My Regards,
Norman.

Have to correct myself, it's in Tibet/Nepal style. I get the correction from someone how knows it much better as I am. But both a recent and worked maybe in China, Rajesh was correct.

Hi Norman,
General thoughts expressed here suggest that your Buddha is Thai. I had always associated this particular "hairdo" with Thai Buddhas. Here are some pics of actual Thai Buddhas. Sorry quality is not A1 but most Temples don't
like flash photography, or in fact ANY photography!

Hi,
Thanks to all for the input. It seems you were right all along Rajesh and Tibet/Nepal it is. Appears you have a thing for Buddhas which is completely understandable. I bought all of the statues in the understanding that they were relatively modern so no big surprises as to their age. The little bronze creatures I believe are mythical beasts from the land of Himmapan and I am still trying to identify the exact name for each, Singha was the keyword I needed so thanks again Rajesh.
My Regards,
Norman.

Hi Stu,
At first I thought it was definitely Thai or that region but I did a lot of searching and to be honest I'm still confused as to generalised styles. Rajesh looks to have a good bit of knowledge judging by his collection and also Sajen's friend whom he states has good knowledge of the subject also i.d's it as Tibet/Nepal.
My Regards,
Norman.

I guess there is a deal of "crossculture" in the styles, but all are Buddhas....just from different regions. The 3 pics I posted are definitely Thai, but my knowledge of the different styles, and the regions they come from is minimal!
