Description

King Jayavarman VII is depicted with his hair tied in a bun, seatedwith  his legs crossed, engaged in deep meditation. Closed eyes, a smile
illuminating his face: the serene expression of King Jayavarman evokes compassion. This is the face of a king who felt that the sufferings of
his people were his own suffering and who built an extensive network of hospitals to take care of his people. A fervent Mahayana Buddhist, he
placed Buddha and Lokeshvara at the top of a pantheon in which Hindu
gods were also largely represented.

This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the verytalented artists of the beautiful country of Cambodia.
