Why this is a
Masterpiece

The bejeweled buddha image is decorated by many ornaments that look like belonging to a King's outfit. This style was very popular in the Ayutthaya art style.

History of the Object
This sculpture represents one of the phases of Buddha's life, the time when a quarrel broke out between his followers. He left the monks for the Parileyyaka Forest. He was served by an elephant and a monkey. The elephant brought water and the monkey offered honey to the Buddha.
