  • Antique Indonesian Style Seated Bronze Javanese Preaching Buddha - 17.5cm/7"

    Measures (Height) 17.5cm/7"

    An Indonesian (Java) seated preaching Buddha in 13th century Majapahit style.

    The Buddha is seated on a lotus flower base with his right foot resting on a separate lotus flower. The pedestal upon which the Buddha sits is also decorated with lotus flower buds, his feet resting upon one.

    His robe is draped over his left shoulder, and a portion of the garment that covers the left wrist falls behind the figure. The lower hem of the robe comes all the way down so that the under-cloth or skirt is completely covered.

    An aureole or halo sits behind the head of the Buddha. These circles of light symbolise his divinity.

    He holds his hands in front of his chest in the dharmachakra mudra. In sanskrit dharmachakra means the 'Wheel of Dharma'. This mudra symbolises one of the most important moments in the life of Buddha, the occasion when he preached to his companions the first sermon after his Enlightenment in the Deer Park at Sarnath. It therefore denotes the setting into motion of the Wheel of the teaching of the Dharma. In this mudra the thumb and index finger touch at their tips to form a circle. This circle represents the Wheel of Dharma, or in metaphysical terms, the union of method and wisdom. This symbolises generosity.

    The detail and patina of the piece are delightful.

Let Us Help You Find The Piece You Desire

The Naga were safely delivered this afternoon. They are wonderful pieces, and I am very happy to have them. Thank you so much!

I just opened the Buddha statue I purchased from you. I couldn’t be happier! It’s really beautiful, particularly the face. The shipping was faster than pieces I’ve bought on Etsy coming from the US, so thank you!! Do you have any idea how old this statue is? I’m looking forward to receiving the Avalokitesvara statue I recently ordered.

Laura, New York City, NY, USA

The Buddha head arrived safely today. The look of serenity they all possess is very appealing. This sandstone head strikes me as being particularly beautiful. The way the sculptor has created that look of complete contentment amazes me. Just the hint of a smile - definitely more Mona Lisa than Laughing Cavalier! A wonderful piece and I love it!
