Antique Khmer Style Bronze Seated Amitabha Meditation Buddha Statue - 44cm/18"
Measures (Height) 44cm/18"
An antique Khmer style Amitabha Meditation Buddha. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. The peaceful countenance of Lord Buddha exudes harmony.
Buddha Amitabha's hands are held in the Dhyana mudra or 'Meditation Position'. Fingers barely touching and gently folded over the lap with palms facing upward. This hand gesture promotes the energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy.
The bodies profile is with broad shoulders and slender waist, covered by a Sanghati robe worn diagonally over the left shoulder, and is graced by a heavily pleated flap draped to the navel. The right shoulder is left bare.
The Buddha features an oval face, with almond shaped downcast eyes. Curved eyebrows meet above a prominent nose, and contoured lips with an exalted expression, appear smiling. The striations of the hair form a line around the face. 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 torso. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The distinctive patina of the piece is also particularly delightful.
The sculpture provides the perfect Buddha to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.
