Sawankhalok Pottery Figurine | Thailand, 14-15C


A pottery figurine that would have been baked in the 14th and 15th centuries in the Sawankhalok kiln, Thailand. Originally it was covered with black brown glaze, but it has almost peeled off.

It may be a Buddha statue to presume from the form. Although the neck is missing, most Sukhothai figures are found without their necks or legs legs. There is a theory that when it was buried as a burial item, it was intentionally destroyed with a ceremonial intention.

A beautiful posture and the organic curves, the appeal of Sukhothai figrine’s beauty is still retained even if the head is lost and the glaze peeled off.
