The country of Siam is now called Thailand. Chinese pilgrims who traveled there during the early 6th or 7th centuries were the first to put down historical facts about the country. One of the earliest pieces of Siamese sculpture was a Wheel of the Law made of stone, and some deer sculptures, which were found at the stupa at P'rapatom.

Buddhas in heavy bluish limestone with many curls, arched eyebrows and asexual bodies were the most common sculptures during the Dvaravati period. On the Malay Peninsula, the Hindu and Bhuddist architecture and sculpture is virtually identical to the Indian monuments of the Pala Period. Even though both Hinduism and Bhuddism existed side by side, most of the remaining statues are of Bhudda. They were done in bronze and sandstone from about the early llth century to about the middle of the 13th century. As time went on, the statues evolved. The Bhuddas at Chiengsen, done during the late 13th century forward, shows tightly crossed legs, full bodies with feminine chests, oval faces, and arched noses, among other characteristics.
