Lord Buddha is seated in dhyana asana, the meditative pose also called padmasana, with his hands in vitarka mudra.

Vitarka mudra is interpreted as the hand gesture that evokes the energy of teaching and intellectual discussion, or argument. The circle formed by the thumb and index finger create a constant flow of energy and information.

The art of wood sculpture goes back to the glorious epoch of the Khmer empire and the monumental constructions that gave rise to the Angkor temples. Our artisans have inherited patience and meticulousness from their ancestors in the trade. They have learned to capture the movements used in olden times and master the traditional tools in order adapt to their personal lines of work.

This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the artists of Cambodia.
