  • Antique Khmer Style Seated Bronze Enlightenment Angkor Wat Buddha Statue - 20cm/8"

    Measures (Height) 20cm/8"

    A 12th century style Angkor Wat enlightenment Buddha. His hands are in the Bhumisparsa mudra, the gesture of Enlightenment.

    The Buddha's face is serene, with a naturalistic and warm expression; his head is topped by a detailed lotus flower ushnisha, in the Angkor Wat style, symbolizing his high level of spiritual development. 

    The bodies profile is with broad shoulders and slender waist, covered by a Sanghati robe worn diagonally over the left shoulder. 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. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings.

    The surface of the Buddha has a lovely aged in appearance patina.

    The Buddha is seated in the Bhumisparsa or 'Calling the Earth to Witness' mudra. 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.

    This traditional in appearance piece is sure to add serenity to your home, office or sacred space.

Let Us Help You Find The Piece You Desire

The package arrived today -- very well packed and the statues are very good. I have spent over 30 years in Asia -- quite a bit of that in Thailand and a little in Cambodia and Laos. It has been difficult to find reproductions of this quality and I salute you for your effort and your success.

The statue has arrived. It is in a very nice position in our main entrance area and looks wonderful;-). Thank you again and best regards.

Yvonne, Malta

Many, many thanks. The Buddha is just perfect! I couldn't be any happier with his countenance, posture and the workmanship. And the little Manjusri is wonderful! I was not familiar with the symbolism of this figure--it is very intriguing.
