    Description

    This beautiful Cambodian Buddha statue was carved from an antique piece of wood.  Lord Buddha has a wonderful serene expression and a faint smile.  He is depicted in the abhaya mudra also known as the protection gesture standing on a lotus throne.  The ushnisha, protuberance above his head also referred to as a topknot, symbolizes His wisdom and openness as an enlightened being.  He has elongated earlobes, a vestige of his life as a prince, when he wore extravagant jewelry.

    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.
