Description

This golden ochre robe Buddha is seated in dhyana asana, the meditative pose also called padmasana, with his hands in vitarka mudra or teaching gesture. Vitarka mudra is he hand gesture that evokes the energy of teaching and intellectual discussion or argument. It is said that it mostly feels like the transmission of a particular teaching with no words and that the circle formed by the thumb and index finger create a constant flow of energy and information.

This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the very talented artists of Cambodia. Every piece is truly unique!
