Description

This beautiful Buddha head has heavy eyelids that evoke a mood of introspection and detachment, enhanced by the hint of a smile on the full lips. It has stylistic fullness of face, heavy lower lip and pronounced haircurls. The distended earlobes, a legacy of Prince Siddhartha's discarding his heavy gold jewelry further indicate the Buddha's enlightened status.

About Wood Lacquering & Gilding: The artisans begin this process by sizing the wood, before applying colors made with natural pigments. The pieces can be adorned with copper or gold leaf gilding. Pieces that are glossy are sanded and polished in order to give them their glossy finish. Some pieces may be lacquered, smoothed and then varnished.

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