19th Century Burmese Wood Kneeling Buddha Disciples Statue (Pair) - 31cm/12"
Measures (Height) 31cm/12"
A pair of 19th century Buddhist disciples - Shariputra and Maudgalyayana. Depicted as freestanding sculptures each is sat respectfully with their legs to one side. Shariputra is leaning forward, listening attentively. Maudgalyayana holds his hands together in reverence.
Contemporaries of Buddha, they were legendary for their piety and power. Here the sculptor has imparted a touching sense of youthful tenderness. The disciples have a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. Each carving is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly.
The sculpture provides the perfect Buddha to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.

Buddha statues don’t have to be used exclusively for meditation and Buddhist worship. Whilst meditative guidance and the replication of the sensation of a Buddhist temple is exactly the reason why many Buddhists are drawn to having statues in the home, different statues can mean different things for everybody.
