Antique Thai Style Wood Standing Thoughtful Sunday Buddha Panel - 80cm/31.5"
Measures - (Height) 80cm/31.5"
An antique Thai style teak wood Buddha panel. The enlightened Buddha, shown with a halo behind his head (symbolising his divinity), is stood on a lotus flower bronze pedestal. This is the Buddhist symbol for those born on a Sunday. Representing an Open-Eye posture, the Buddha stands with hands crossed over his abdomen, in pensive thought. The right hand is placed over the left on the upper thigh.
Here, the enlightened Buddha contemplates his achievements and knowledge, standing still for 7 days under the Bodhi Tree to contemplate the suffering of all living things. The large ushnisha protuberance on top of his head, symbolizes his high level of spiritual development.
This is also the Buddha for those born on a Sunday.
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 large ushnisha protuberance on top of his head, symbolizes his high level of spiritual development.
The Buddha is surrounded by the leaves and branches of the Bodhi tree. He is stood on a lotus flower.
The carving 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.
At approximately 6cm or 2" deep the panel is perfect for hanging on a wall or resting on a shelf. To the rear is a brass hook, so the panel is ready to hang on your wall.
