19th Century Khmer Bronze Abhaya Protection Buddha Statue - 13cm/5"
Measures - (Height) 13cm/5"
A 19th century Khmer Buddha statue from Cambodia. The Buddha is enthroned and stood in the Abhaya or Protection mudra. A hand gesture that offers reassurance and safety - dispelling fear and according divine protection and bliss to the devotee. This is one of the earliest Mudra found depicted on a number of Hindu, Buddhist, and Jaina images.
The Buddha is stood beneath the Bodhi tree, the tree under which Buddha achieved enlightenment. To either side of the sculpture are the Naga serpents offering protection.
The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings.
The peaceful countenance of Lord Buddha exudes harmony. The casting 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 sculpture provides the perfect Buddha to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.

It is an amazing "museum quality" antique bronze!!! For a 19th century bronze antique, I believe the Newark, NJ Museum may express interest if I show them. However, they will never get it and I will have it in my collection for posterity. We will be doing much more business in the foreseeable future, count on it!!!

Thank you so very much! Well, I needed Buddha here -- and I certainly now have Buddha here in many ways and many forms -- with thanks to HDAsianArt. Each statue you've sent has worked out very well -- each in its own way -- each combined in settings with other art pieces -- each has blended well -- finishing off different areas of my home -- and all communicates well to tell a story of different aspects of my life. I intentionally chose your pieces -- to get away from the "norm" of beautiful gild Buddhas that everyone has -- your pieces are quite unique -- and a bit more "real" -- which serves my purpose well. So, thank you.
