This beautiful white marble Buddha has a serene facial expression. It is carved from a single block of white marble. Lord Buddha is seated on a a beautifully hand painted single lotus throne in "adamantine position" (vajrasana) with his legs crossed and the soles of both feet turned up. His hands are in dharmachakra mudra (teaching gesture). This was also the hand gesture exhibited by Lord Buddha while preaching his first sermon at Sarnath.

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.

This marble sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the very talented artists of Myanmar (Burma). Every piece is truly unique!
