Description

King Jayavarman VII is depicted with his hair tied in a bun, seated with his legs crossed, engaged in deep meditation.  Closed eyes, a smile illuminating his face: the serene expression of King Jayavarman evokes compassion.  This is the face of a king who felt that the sufferings of his people were his own suffering and who built an extensive network of hospitals to take care of his people.  A fervent Mahayana Buddhist, he placed Buddha and Lokeshvara at the top of a pantheon in which Hindu gods were also largely represented.

This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the artists of Cambodia.
