19th Century Gilded Bronze Sculpture 19th Century; Similar to the Royal Court Dancer of King Sisowath; Siam Thailand Cambodia Khmer Related; Lost Wax Process and Sand Cast


19th Century Gilded Bronze Sculpture 19th Century; Royal Court Dancer of  King Sisowath; Siam Thailand Cambodia Khmer Related; Lost Wax Process and Sand Cast This 19th century sculpture of a dancer from a Royal Court is just stunning. Whomever made her was very adept at capturing her expression; molding in bronze the essence of her trace like expression. She seems to be in a deep concentration as she poses with arms outstretched and balancing on one leg.  Her arms seems to be expressing the motion of a wave as her hands express the ebb and flow movement, or it seems. The hollow design of her eye gives her an almost eerily life like quality when held in hand.She is a one of kind done in the lost wax process evidenced by wax escape holes found on the idol. These holes have been filled with lead wax and I will point out in photos when possible.She has an elaborate detailed costume that is found on these royal court dancers. She is wearing a beautiful costume that is very ornate. The detail on this costume shows a embroidered and exquisite brocade material.  The jacket has many small flowers that protrude out from the surface attesting to the quality workmanship that went into producing one of these costume.

The sculpture is done in three separate pieces, the pedestal, the one foot raised and the body. The base looks as if it was sand cast, On close inspection there is traces of gold gilding throughout the entire bronze.  It stands 10 1/2″  or 26.5 cm high by 6 1/2″ or 16.4 cm wide

Here are some phrase used in search in the Southeast Asia  area របាំក្បាច់បូរាណ, ល្ខោនព្រះរាជទ្រព្យ, របាំព្រះរាជទ្រព្យ, ល្ខោនព្រះរាជទ្រព្យ

    The 19th Century; Royal Court Dancer of King Sisowath I was told that the a net worth
    of this sculpture is about 75 to $80,000.00 Dollars in value. Legend has it that there
    Were only 10 made in the world all with same pose but not same dress. One in perfect
    Condition is worth $ 150,000.00 dollars.
