    Description

    This Buddha statue is one of a few selected pieces which were hand painted using rich blended colors.

    Lord Buddha is seated in dhyana asana, the meditative pose also called padmasana. His hands are in dhyana mudra which is the mudra of meditation. It is also called samadhi or yoga mudra.

    The art of wood sculpture in Cambodia 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.
