Why this is a
Masterpiece

The sculpture distinctly presents the Dvaravati art style. On the top the sculpture has a stupa and an inscription. The inscription refers to Dhamma of Buddha but some part of it disappeared. This passage is very important because it called to the Heart of Buddhism. The passage was frequently engraved on medals, amulets and sculptures in Buddhism.

History of the Object
In the 7th Century, Theravada Buddhism of the Dvaravati from the central Chao Phraya basin was a religion held in high esteem on the Isan Plateau. The Dvaravati style derived from Indian archetypes such as Amaravati and Gupta styles, which were integrated with local art.
