Lord Buddha is depicted in abhaya mudra also know as the gesture of protection. This is one of the most popular hand gestures of the Buddha which is said to transmit the energy of protection, peace and a sense of strong, deep inner security.
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 very talented artists of Cambodia.
