  • Antique Sukhothai Style Standing Bronze Protection Walking Buddha Statue - 64cm/26"

    Measures – (Height) 64cm/26”

    An antique Sukhothai style Walking Buddha from Thailand.

    Here, the Walking Buddha is depicted as a serene and upright figure, clothed in monastic robes. The Buddha's left hand is extended forward with the palm facing upward, while the right hand remains at the side. The posture and gesture convey a sense of purpose and mindfulness.

    The Walking Buddha represents the Buddha engaged in walking meditation (kinhin in Zen Buddhism), a practice integral to the Buddhist path. Walking meditation is a deliberate and mindful practice that involves walking slowly and attentively, being fully present in each step. It is a method of cultivating mindfulness, concentration, and insight.

    The Walking Buddha also embodies a sense of dynamic equanimity, signifying that enlightenment is not limited to stillness but can be realized in the midst of life's activities. It reflects the idea that one can attain spiritual awakening and maintain mindfulness while engaging in daily routines and responsibilities.

    The balanced posture of the Walking Buddha symbolizes the middle path, a core concept in Buddhism. It teaches the importance of avoiding extremes and finding harmony in all aspects of life. 

    The act of walking itself is a reminder of the impermanent nature of existence. Each step taken by the Walking Buddha signifies the continuous cycle of change and the impermanence of all things, a fundamental teaching in Buddhism.

    The Buddha is depicted walking after his enlightenment on a double lotus leaf circular lotus base. The lotus flower represents purity, compassion and the giving of great joy to all. 

    The large flaming ushnisha protuberance on top of his head, typical of the Sukhothai period, symbolizes his high level of spiritual development.

    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 casting is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face and hands. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The distinctive patina of the piece is also particularly delightful.

    The peaceful countenance of Lord Buddha exudes harmony. With his left hand raised the Buddha is stood in the Abhaya mudra "gesture of fearlessness". A mudra (gesture) that offers protection, reassurance and safety. Dispelling fear and according divine protection and bliss in many Indian religions. 

    The image of the Walking Buddha is a powerful representation of mindfulness, balance, and the dynamic nature of the spiritual journey in Buddhism. It serves as a reminder that enlightenment is not limited to static moments of contemplation but can be realized in the midst of life's movements and activities.

    The Walking Buddha invites practitioners to embrace mindfulness, engage in daily life with equanimity, and cultivate the qualities of compassion and wisdom on their path toward spiritual awakening.

    The sculpture provides the perfect traditional in appearance Buddha to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.
