Abstract: This paper presents a short study of some recently discovered moulded tablets found in peninsular Thailand. They depict a particular type of Buddha image seated in bhadrasana, that is the posture with both legs extended and the feet firmly planted on the ground or on a lotus pedestal. This iconography is often found--albeit not only--in central Thailand during the commonly labeled "art or period Dvaravati" (ca 7th-8th c.), one of Thailand's oldest religious and artistic cultures.
