Exceptional cypress wood buddhist Amidha Buddha sitting on gold lacquer lotus base on a gold laquer stand. We don`t think the lotus stand the buddha is sitting on and the gold base stand were originally together but they go together very nicely so we purchased this piece. The buddha`s facial expression rich with compassion and the carving of the hair with glass on forehead chakra is outstanding. The halo is in very good condition as is the piece. (see pictures). 50cm tall by 18cm wide. Ask for shipping quote.
