    Description

    This magnificent Cambodian Buddha statue was carved from an antique piece of wood.  Lord Buddha is standing on a lotus flower base.  His hands are held up in abhaya mudra.  The ushnisha, protuberance above his head also referred to as a topknot, symbolizes His wisdom and openness as an enlightened being.  The ushnisha is also said to symbolize the loose connection between the mind and body of a Buddha.  The Buddha is always depicted with 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.
