  • Antique Stone Stele Thai Enlightenment Buddha Statue - 56cm/22"

    Measures (Height) 56cm/22"

    Antique Thai stele depicting a seated Enlightenment Buddha.

    The Buddha is seated, in virasana, cross-legged symbol of Serenity, with both hands in the Bhumisparsa or 'Calling 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.

    The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. He has a large ushnisha protuberance on top of his head symbolizing his high level of spiritual development.

    A halo can be seen behind the Buddha representing his divinity and perfection.

    The stele is inscribed with multiple lines of sanskrit text on its front. The rear of the Stele is decorated with the Dharmacakra (Wheel of the Law), Axe and Vase of Plenty.

    Loose mounted to a wood base (later).
