Antique Khmer Style Wood Standing Protection Monday Buddha Statue - 54cm/22"
Measures (Height) 54cm/22"
An antique Khmer style teak wood Buddha from Cambodia.
The enlightened Buddha is depicted in the Abhaya mudra offering protection to the devotee. The peaceful countenance of Lord Buddha exudes harmony.
The Abhaya mudra "gesture of fearlessness" is a mudra (gesture) that offers protection, reassurance and safety. Dispelling fear and according divine protection and bliss in many Indian religions. The hand is held upright, and the palm is facing outwards. This is one of the earliest mudras found depicted on a number of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain images.
This is also the Buddha for those born on a Monday.
The Buddha 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 large ushnisha protuberance on top of his head, symbolizes his high level of spiritual development, rises to a stylised lotus bud finial. The carving is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face and hands.
Each detail is rendered perfectly. The distinctive patina of the piece is also particularly delightful.

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.
