    Measures – (Height) 36cm/14”

    An antique Shan style Buddha statue from Burma.

    The Shan Buddha, also known as the Shan State Buddha, is a unique representation of Lord Buddha that originated in the Shan State of Burma. The Shan people, an ethnic group with a rich cultural history, have contributed significantly to Burma's diverse tapestry. The statue is a fusion of traditional Burmese and Shan artistic styles, creating a visual masterpiece that reflects the harmonious coexistence of various cultural influences.

    The statue is based on a Jambupati Buddha image of the Burmese Shan-type dating to the 17th-18th century. The Buddha wears costly royal jewelry. Under the royal jewellery the Buddha wears a monk’s robe, the border of which falls over the left arm.

    The Buddha, which for the most part corresponds to the characteristics of the bronze “Jambupati” type, wears a traditional Shan-diadem with tall pointed ushnisha. The diadem is shaped as a lotus flower bud.

    The Buddha has elongated earlobes and wears heavy piercing horn earrings. The bodies profile is with broad shoulders and slender waist. He 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 Buddha is seated on a decorated pedestal.

    With fingers slightly touching the ground this position represents the subduing of Mara (a demon) who bombarded Buddha with demons, monsters, violent storms and the three seductive daughters. Remaining steadfast the Buddha testified to his meritorious past by pointing to the earth and calling the Earth Goddess, Thorani.

    Rising from the ground the Earth Goddess wrings the water from her long black hair. By this action she raises a torrential flood that drowns Mara and his army of demons. This gesture reflects this story symbolizing enlightenment, as well as steadfastness and Buddha’s achievement of perfection or nirvana.

    Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the Shan Buddha holds profound symbolism within the Buddhist faith. The serene expression on the Buddha's face signifies inner peace and enlightenment, serving as a reminder to practitioners of the path towards spiritual awakening. 

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