Antique Buddha Statue Laos Southeast Asia

$8,000

About

The wood standing Buddha in standing position was executed in a typical Laotian style, which features a slim and elongated body and a serene facial expression. The Buddha's hands are in the gesture of double Abhaya mudra. This mudra symbolizes the act of dispelling fear in the face of adversity. In Laos and Thailand where this mudra are used as one of the most iconic gestures, it had the origin was before the onset of Buddhism, as a symbol of good intentions to propose friendship when approaching strangers. In contrast to Indian iconography, it was often shown with both hands raised to the level of the shoulder in Southeast Asia. The body of the Buddha was carved in a solid piece of teak wood. It features fine details with an original gilt surface and intricate small glass mosaic inlay. It is dated to 19th century and on a later wood base.
