This exhibit is meant to emphasize the importance of the Buddha sculptural work that is seen through out Asia and specifically in Thailand. Non-Western cultures use their deities in most all of their art and most everything they create is influenced by their deities. Thai art is no different from their architecture to their clothing and sculpture they are always portray their idea of a deity, which is a strongly Indian influenced Buddha, in their work. Each of my pieces helps reinforce the very typical style of a sculpted buddha in Thai art. Most of the cast in bronze. Each possessing the very typical spiral curls expected of the Buddha, having elongated earlobes to show his position that once was being a prince and several other very typical things found in a Buddha piece. They all exhibit this very typical style for Buddhas and the Thai traits being the flaming head pieces and calm faces they posses. They all exhibit all the traits that the Thai culture pulled from the stories and beliefs that the Indians shared with them during their trades. They do not hold the same style as the Buddhas from China because Thailand is closer in coordinates with India. This however is why I love the sculpture work because even though they are taken form another countries ideology they are very much different from the Indian style. They embellish a little than average. I overall enjoy this gallery and really hope you will as well. Each of these pieces were carefully chosen so that you could see some different styles within the Thai arts as well as see some of the fine details that go into their work.
