Buddha Statue of Ayutthaya Style

Buddha images of the Ayutthaya period show more different gestures than the other previous styles. The images display the influence of Lopburi, U Thong and Sukhothai styles. The face may be more square, and a band (U Thong influence) may be present between the hairline and the forehead. The facial expression is more stern, sometimes without any smile at all. It became also common to show the Buddha wearing a lot of ornaments. The Bhumiphassa Buddha is always depicted in a seated position, with its right hand resting on its knee and fingers pointing towards the earth.
