Antique Khmer Style Wood Buddha Statue Dhyana Meditation Mudra 37cm/15. Antique Khmer style wood Buddha statue. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. The bodies profile is with broad shoulders and slender waist, covered by a Sanghati robe worn diagonally over the left shoulder, and is graced by a heavily pleated flap draped to the navel. The right shoulder is left bare. The Buddha features an oval shaped face, with almond shaped downcast eyes. Curved eyebrows meet above a prominent nose, and contoured lips with an exalted expression, appear smiling. The shell like curls of the hair form are surmounted by a lotus flower ushnisha, symbolising his high level of spiritual development. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. The carving is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The distinctive patina of the piece is also particularly delightful. The Buddha is seated in the half lotus position with his hands in the Dhyana mudra or’Meditation Position’. This hand gesture promotes the energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy. The sculpture provides the perfect traditional in appearance Buddha to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.
