This Buddha statue is depicted in abhaya mudra also know as the
gesture of protection. This is one of the most popular hand gestures of
the Buddha which is said to transmit the energy of protection, peace
and a sense of strong, deep inner security. He is seated in the half
lotus position with his right leg on top of his left. He has a slight
smile with long earlobes that frame his face. A beautiful Buddharupa
with saffron colored robes, perfect for a home altar or meditation room.
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
artists of Cambodia.
