Early 18th Century Carved Hardwood Oriental Buddha

About

This beautiful and serene hand-carved wooden statue of an oriental Buddha, possibly Siamese, has the remnants of original gilt and painted finish. It measures 16 in – 40.6 cm wide, 11 in – 28 cm deep and 66 in – 167.6 cm in height. This stunning piece of sculpture, with it's culture and history would make a spectacular feature piece for many rooms in the home. This statue has two meanings based on two different stories. The first meaning of Repelling the Ocean comes from a story when the Buddha visited Bihar state in India. A hermit unleashed a wall of water hoping to cause a flood, but the Buddha used the power generated from meditating to stop the water from flooding the area. The Forbidding ‘The Relatives from Fighting’ is related to a period in the life of the Buddha where relatives of his father had an argument with relatives of the Buddha's mother over water, as one of the rivers that both sets of relatives normally depended on was starting to run dry. The Buddha raised his right hand to draw attention to their own bickering and asked them what was more important; water, or their family relations?
