Description

This Cambodian Buddha statue was carved from an antique piece of wood. Lord Buddha is depicted in dhyana mudra also known as the meditation gesture. The Buddha is always depicted with elongated earlobes, a vestige of his life as a prince, when he wore extravagant jewelry. The deep muted colors of this piece are absolutely stunning.

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 the beautiful country of Cambodia!
