Wooden Burmese Temple Buddha with Khmer Script
Please refer to our stock # SEA131 when inquiring.
This antique carved wooden temple Buddha retains much of his original gilded paint. He sits on a tall base covered with the old Mon Khmer script which had been formed by scratching through the golden paint. The Buddha's head is topped with a stupa-shaped "flame" called usnisa, which symbolizes the realization of Nirvana. Perhaps that explains the soft smile and meditative expression on his face. He appears to be a Buddha from the Tai Lue ethnic group in Burma, the country currently known as Myanmar. The statue including the base stands approximately 12 inches tall.
