Description

King Jayavarman VII is depicted with his hair tied in a bun, seated with his legs crossed and his hands in dhyana mudra, the gesture of mediation. 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.
