Lord Buddha's hand is held up in abhaya
mudra also known as the gesture of protection. The ushnisha,
protuberance above his head also referred to as a topknot, symbolizes
His wisdom and openness as an enlightened being. The Buddha is always
depicted with elongated earlobes, a vestige of his life as a prince,
when he wore extravagant jewelry.
This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the very talented artists of the beautiful country Cambodia.
