Description

This piece is inspired by the "Adorned Orant of Angkor Wat" (XVth century found in the National Museum of Phnom Penh).  Orants are compassionate beings, disciples of the Buddha.  This Orant is kneeling, expressing humility, his hands are in prayer paying homage to a divinity.  They are also symbols of good luck and are often placed in the entrance of homes welcoming guests.

This sculpture is entirely hand-crafted and in rural villages in Cambodia.  Every piece is truly unique!

About Wood Lacquering & Gilding: The artisans begin this process by sizing the wood, before applying colors made with natural pigments. The pieces can be adorned with copper or gold leaf gilding. Pieces that are glossy are sanded and polished in order to give them their glossy finish. Some pieces may be lacquered, smoothed and then varnished.
