Description

Carved from a single block of white marble and painted with gold leaf and other pigments, Lord Buddha is seated on a lotus throne in "adamantine position" (vajrasana) with his legs crossed and the soles of both feet turned up. His hands are in the gesture of Bhumisparsha mudra (earth touching gesture).


This beautiful white marble Buddha has a serene facial expression. After the Burmese capital was moved to Ava in 1636 during the Second Empire of the Toungoo dynasty (1551-1752), Buddha images were increasingly made of marble with a smooth finish on the surface and minimum decoration, rendering the image with a simple and pure appearance.
