Description

This beautifully carved golden Burmese teak wood Buddha statue is seated in the earth touching gesture also know as “calling the earth to witness”. This mudra represents the moment when the Buddha, seated in the meditation under the Bodhi Tree on the eve of enlightenment, is challenged by Mara (the Evil One) to prove that he had given alms. At that point the Buddha touched the ground with his right hand, asking the earth to bear witness to his good deeds in previous existences. In response the earth quaked, causing Mara and his hosts to flee. This mudra may also be referred to as maravijaya meaning “victory over Mara.”

The statue is inlaid with mirror and glass mosaic.

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