Description

This peaceful, golden robe Buddha is depicted in vitarka mudra, this is the mudra or gesture representing the discussion and transmission of the teachings by the Buddha.

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.
