Buddha Abhaya Mudra, Cambodian Wood Statue

 Abhaya Mudra Buddha Statue

Lord Buddha’s hand is held up in abhaya mudra also known as the gesture of protection. The ushnisha, protuberance above his head also referred to as a topknot, symbolizes His wisdom and openness as an enlightened being. The Buddha is always depicted with elongated earlobes, a vestige of his life as a prince, when he wore extravagant jewelry. This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the very talented artists of Cambodia.
