Laos, early 20th century

An important and imposing representation of a bronze Buddha sitting in the position of the earth-witness also called Bhumisparsha Mudra 

The Bhumisparsha Buddha is systematically represented in a sitting position, with the right hand on the knee and fingers pointing towards the ground. The left hand rests on the knee with the palm facing upwards. "Bhumisparsha" means "to touch the earth" or "to take the earth as a witness". This mudra represents the moment when Buddha reaches enlightenment below the Bodhi tree.
