Description

Lord Buddha is seated in dhyana asana, the meditative pose also called padmasana. His right hand is in vitarka mudra.

Vitarka mudra is interpreted as the hand gesture that evokes the energy of teaching and intellectual discussion or argument. It mostly feels like the transmission of a particular teaching with no words, and the circle formed by the thumb and index finger creates a constant flow of energy and information.

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!
