Bronze Four Faced Buddha Head Sculpture or Paperweight

About the Item

A very cool four faced bronze Buddha head sculpture or paperweight, circa 1960s. The piece is in very good vintage condition and measures: 3"D x 3.25"H. The sculpture is signed on the underside. #3441 The four faces of the Buddha represent Joy, Serenity, Sorrow & Anger—all of the aspects of life that we have experienced at some stage. It is a reminder that life and of course our feelings are not permanent and in order to appreciate these qualities that we wish to attain, i.e. joy and serenity, you must experience the feelings of sadness and anger. This statue is a symbol of what we desire versus what we wish to escape from.

  • Vintage Silver Plated Bronze Four Face Buddha Brahma Hindu Sculpture 20th C
    Located in London, GB
    This is an interesting and very unusual silver plated bronze bust of the famous four-faced Buddha. This history of this fascinating motif entails a fusion between the Hindu and Buddhist faiths. This high quality hot cast solid bronze was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method. Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation. Dimensions in cm: Height 15 x Width 14 x Depth 14 & Weight 2.45 kg Dimensions in inches: Height 6 inches x Width 5 inches x Depth 5 inches & Weight 5.4 lbs The four faced Buddha at the Erawan Shrine, Bangkok is actually Lord Brahma who is one of the Trinity of Hindu Gods. The other two are Lord Vishnu, the sustainer and Lord Siva the destroyer. Brahma is said to be born from a lotus leaf sprouting from the navel of Vishnu. The Thais call Brahma, Than Tao MahaProm or Phra Phrom. When Indian scholars spread Buddhism to Thailand, they brought with them Hindu culture and folklore, which has been inextricably linked with Thai culture and beliefs. Brahma has four faces and eight hands; a feature that could have given rise to the name four faced Buddha. He is the god of creation, mercy and benevolence. He sits atop a lotus leaf; the lotus flower is commonly used for prayers at Thai shrines...
