This Burmese alabaster Buddha statue has large, curving ears, placed well back from the face which touch the shoulders. Sweeping bow-like brows, set high on the forehead above half closed eyes, gaze past a long nose terminating in well defined nostrils above a small, thin-lipped and smiling mouth. A narrow incised band separates the forehead from the hair. Lord Buddha is seated in padmasana, the right hand with fingers of equal length extends over the knee in the bhumisparsa mudra (earth touching gesture). The right shoulder is bare, and the robes have been emphasized by folding flaps of cloth over the left shoulder that extends to the waist. The simple throne has been finished with a painted band of lotus petals.
This alabaster sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the very talented artists of Myanmar (Burma). Every piece is truly unique!
