Antique Khmer Style Bronze Bayon Standing Lokeshvara Statue and Yoni - 89cm/36"
Measures (Height) 89cm/36"
An antique Khmer style eight arm Lokeshvara statue in the Bayon style. Standing in samapada with his arms radiating around him and clad in a short sampot with fishtail pleat and jeweled sash, the face with wide features surmounted by a cylindrical headdress adorned with a meditating Amitabha Buddha.
In his eight hands he holds a Trident, lotus bud, male beads, conch shells, Kalasha, chakra and various other items. His softly contoured face with indigenous characteristic has a serene downcast expression, with heavy-lidded eyes, arched eyebrows carved in relief meet in the middle above a well-shaped broad nose, and wide lips with an insipid smile are framed by a second incised line.
The head is covered in tightly braided woven hair, enhanced by a cylindrical-shaped 'Chignon' style topknot, secured by a ribbon.
The sculpture is mounted on a Yoni. A symbol of fertility and energy and an iconic representation of the Hindu deity, Shiva.

The embracing of Buddhist teachings is what makes it such good luck to bring a statue into your home. Whilst it’s definitely worth doing your research to know exactly what it is that your statue can do for you (not least so that you can make the most out of its presence), there is no such thing as bad luck from buying a Buddha statue for yourself, so long as you keep it clean and treat it with its due respect.
