This beautiful pink speckled contemporary Cambodian Buddha statue was recently carved from an antique piece of wood. Lord Buddha has a wonderful serene expression and a faint smile. He is depicted in vitarka mudra. Vitarka mudra is one of the most commonly found mudras or poses. Vitarka Mudra is the mudra or gesture representing the discussion and transmission of Lord Buddha's teachings.

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 Cambodian 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 have mastered the use of 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 the beautiful Kingdom of Cambodia!
