What is Chiang Sean or Lanna Buddha style?


If you go around Chiang mai, Chiang Rai, Nan or Lamphun you would see a lot of Thai temples and Buddha Statues. Have you ever wondered what distinguishes Lanna style from other Thai styles?

  • Hair style which is a frame-like halo with a large round hair form. This hairstyle is almost similar to another Thai style except the round hair form has no detail and is not in a spiral form.

  • Face Style : Soft round smiling expression face with knotted chin. Compared to another period, it is likely rounder and has no obvious strong hairline. However the soft smile influenced by Sukhothai plays a big role in this period.

  • Body Style is mostly influenced by Sukhothai and Ayuthaya for this part has a very similar style such as the slim waist with convex chest.
  • Cloth style : the hem of the robe over the left shoulder is short and the cloth’s seam is similar to a centipede’s mouth. The makers mostly don’t do the centipede’s mount which makes this one different from the others.

When compared to other South Asian statues, the style of this Thai Buddha statue is absolutely distinct. Therefore there are many curators in the world who are fond of collecting these statues. We can say the Thai antique and amulet market is very competitive! Don’t miss a chance to get one before out of stock!
