Antique Khmer Style Baphuon Reclining Bronze Vishnu Statue - 38cm/13"
Measurements - Height 38cm/13"
An antique Khmer Style reclining bronze Vishnu in the Baphuon style. Vishnu is both world protector and preserver, restorer of moral order - he is all-powerful and all-pervasive by nature.
This representation of Vishnu, frequently seen in Khmer art, shows the God in cosmic sleep between cosmic eras. The bronze is similar in style to Catalog item 5387 in the Phnom Penh National Museum - the highlight of Udayadityavarman's reign which even now retains an almost supernatural power. The lavish jewellery cast on the image includes the remains of armlets, bracelets and a pectoral with seven pendants in back, reminder of its original grandeur.
The Vishnu has perfect balance and proportions which are the key to a fine Vishnu sculpture. The casting is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face and hands. Each detail is rendered perfectly.The patina and details of this piece are particularly appealing.

It is important to remember that Buddhism is all about a personal journey, meaning there are many reasons to bring a Buddha statue into the home as well as many different types of Buddha statue to choose from.
The key element of Buddha statues is that they help communicate and remind individuals of the Buddha’s teachings by helping to focus on spirituality.
