Description This beautiful version of a walking Lord Buddha is very unique. Lord Buddha is depicted in the abhaya mudra or fear not hand gesture in a walking pose directly after his enlightenment. The pose is very unique in that his body is purposely disjointed and not proportionate. His right shoulder is slung back in an awkward position. His head is hung forward looking down at the ground. A side view of his body shows the Buddha to be in a zig zag body pattern. This disjointed figure is a representation of the Buddha existing both on a higher plain of enlightenment while also existing living on earth. Almost as if his body is being torn between two existences. A wonderful sculpture to ponder.

The Buddha is cast from brass and then polished which gives it a beautiful bright gold shine.  Gold Buddha statues are commonly used for temples within Thailand.  Thai devotees often place a square of gold leaf on the Buddha when they go to temple to give offerings to Lord Buddha.
Care

Brass statues from Thailand do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

"You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup."

You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.  If you are really interested in making the statue shine you can use some natural oil, like coconut oil or olive oil, and a cotton rag to wipe down the metal portions of the piece.  You can use a toothbrush as well to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

Thai brass's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The metal can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture every couple of months so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture and then use a cotton cloth with some natural oil to give the statue a shine.
