Buddha Statue - Antique Thai Style Bronze Enlightenment Buddha & Naga Stupa -13.5cm/5" Tall
Measures - (Height) 13.5cm/5"
Antique Thai style bronze enlightenment Buddha and Naga adorned stupa.
The Buddha is seated in the in the Bhumisparsa mudra, the gesture of Enlightenment.
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 base of the stupa also displays the seated enlightenment Buddha.
Encircling the Stupa are further Naga serpents providing protection to the Stupa.
The Stupa is formed from two separate, interlocking parts.
