This antique light rosewood color Cambodian Buddha statue was carved out of monkey pod wood. Lord Buddha is
marked with symbols of his enlightened state such as his cranial
protuberance (ushnisha), which symbolizes His wisdom and openness as
an enlightened being as well as elongated earlobes, a vestige of his
life as a prince when he wore extravagant jewelry. He displays the
protection gesture also known as the abhaya 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 very talented artists of the beautiful country of Cambodia.
