  • Antique Khmer Style Bronze Seated Meditation Naga Buddha Statue - 42cm/17"

    Measures (Height) 42cm/17"

    A Khmer style seated meditation Buddha, seated on a three-tired throne, with the flaring head of a giant Naga, the serpent King Muchalinda, rising behind protectively behind. His hands are in the Dhyana mudra, the gesture of Medtiation.

    The Buddha's face is serene, with a naturalistic and warm expression; his head is topped by a detailed ushnisha, in the Khmer style. In his hands in holds an alms bowl representing the charity and compassion of Buddha.

    The serpent is well rendered and symmetrical. The throne is formed by the coils of the serpent. In the Buddhist culture the Naga or serpent offers protection. The story told here being that Muchalinda protected the Buddha from heavy rain.

    On the reverse of the Naga can be seen a Mandala. A mandala generally represents the spiritual journey, starting from outside to the inner core, through layers.

    The statue is cast in the round, rather than as a relief on a stela. From this, we can infer that Khmer sculptors would have desired their artwork to be viewed from all sides and thus placed in the center of temples rather than against a wall. While this artwork was religious - priests supervised its execution - its realism is unmistakable.

    The Buddhas hands are in Dhyana Mudra, the hand gesture that promotes the energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy. This traditional in appearance piece is sure to add serenity to your home, office or sacred space.

Today I've received Your angkor stele. It's quite splendid. Thank you very much for your mindful and fast shipping. I hope a chanse will come again.

Miki, Osaka, Japan

Just a quick note to let you know your package arrived in fine shape a while ago. (DHL, your shipper, is a very good shipping service; even though I wound up being home when the delivery was made, I was glad to have been able to pre-arrange my electronic signature/authorization to leave the package on my porch, should I not have been home to receive it; that option is a very nice one as it saves the recipient from having to wait around all day, in order to sign for a delivery. I very much like the bronze bust. The coloring is particularly appealing. I've placed it on a bookcase just inside the front entry...it looks great!!!. Very handsome piece. Thanks again for having shipped so quickly, for packing the bust so carefully and for your helpful statuses throughout the transaction process. You are so very good to do business with.
