Description

Lord Buddha is seated in the earth touching gesture also known as the victory of subduing Mara position.

During meditation, Siddartha was subjected to many temptations but none as terrible as those posed by the evil Mara, who bombarded him with demon armies, monsters, beasts, violent storms and his three lascivious daughters.  The Buddha remained steadfast.  Then to testify to Mara of his meritorious past, he points to the earth with his hand and calls forth Thorani, the beautiful earth goddess.  She rises from the ground and wrings the water from her long, black hair, which raises a torrential flood that drowns Mara and his army of demons.

This sculpture is entirely hand-crafted in rural villages in Cambodia.  Every piece is truly unique!
