Antique Khmer Style Wood Standing Protection Monday Buddha Statue - 57cm/23"
Measures (Height) 57cm/23"
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.

I received the Buddha early afternoon on Friday. It is much prettier than I could have ever expected. The pictures do not show the beauty of this piece. It is amazing. You are amazing as well for sending it to me so fast and so well packaged. Thank you so much. I feel so lucky to have this piece and thank you so much for making that happen.
