This golden ochre robe Buddha is seated in dhyana asana, the meditative
pose also called padmasana, with his hands in vitarka mudra or teaching
gesture. Vitarka mudra is he hand gesture that evokes the energy of
teaching and intellectual discussion or argument. It is said that it
mostly feels like the transmission of a particular teaching with no
words and that the circle formed by the thumb and index finger create a
constant flow of energy and information.
This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the very
talented artists of Cambodia. Every piece is truly unique!
