Antique Thai Style Bronze Chiang Saen Abhaya Mudra Protection Buddha Statue - 20cm/8"
Measures - (Height) 20cm/8"
An antique Thai style Buddha from HD Asian Art depicting a Chiang Saen style Buddha after his enlightenment. The Lord Buddha is seated in the Abhaya or protection mudra. The lotus flower bud shaped ushnisha protuberance on top of his head 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. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The distinctive azurite and malachite patina of the piece is also particularly delightful.
The peaceful countenance of Lord Buddha exudes harmony. The Buddha's hands are held up in the abhaya mudra. The Abhaya mudra "gesture of fearlessness" is a mudra (gesture) that offers protection, reassurance and safety. Dispelling fear and according divine protection and bliss in many Indian religions. Both hands are held upright, and the palms are facing outwards. This is one of the earliest mudras found depicted on a number of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain images.
The sculpture provides the perfect traditional in appearance Buddha to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.
