18-19th Century, Manalai, Birmania, Gilded Wood with Glassware Inlays Standing

$27,000

About

One of the figures that have impacted me –among the religions I have had the joy of approaching, studying or even living– is undoubtedly the Lord Buddha. This figure reminds me of the ascetic Buddha who describes Herman Hesse in his beautiful book Siddharta. Iconographically, this magnificent piece represents the Buddha who dominates all human weaknesses; in the head it has multiple circular figures, called nimbus, which represent the experience that each life grants. Thus, this Buddha has so many lives, so many experiences… he has already found enlightenment and entered the state of absolute nothingness that is Nirvana.
