    Description

    This large Cambodian Buddha statue was recently carved from an antique piece of wood. Lord Buddha is marked with symbols of his enlightened state such as his cranial protuberance (ushnisha), which symbolizes His wisdom and openness as an enlightened being as well as elongated earlobes, a vestige of his life as a prince, when he wore extravagant jewelry. He displays the protection gesture also known as the abhaya mudra. He is standing on a single lotus base. The lotus is an emblem of purity, a symbol shared by other Indian religions but especially auspicious for the Buddha, who, like the flower, rises above this world open, pure and unsullied by the residue of the lower realms.

    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.
