    Description

    The royal Buddha is seated and almost 4 feet tall in his kingly attire. He is beautiful! The real gold leaf that provides the beautiful antique gold coloring to the statue adds to the royal appearance of Lord Buddha. The gold leaf is especially apparent on his face and the upper portion of the lotus base.  His lips are pursed together and his eyes are downcast in deep meditation. His royal garments include a crown with triangular shaped designs on each side of the crown.  The Buddha wears jewelry with designs on his chest, shoulders, arms, wrists and ankles the most beautiful of which is the elaborate designs on his chest plate.

    The Buddha is in the Bhumisparsha mudra or the earth touching gesture.  The earth touching mudra mudra is formed with all five fingers of the right hand extended to touch the ground.  It symbolizes the Buddha's enlightenment under the bodhi tree, when he summoned the earth goddess, Sthavara, to bear witness to his attainment of enlightenment. The right hand, placed upon the right knee in earth-pressing mudra, and complemented by the left hand-which is held flat in the lap in the dhyana mudra of meditation, symbolizes the union of method and wisdom, samasara and nirvana, and also the realizations of the conventional and ultimate truths. It is in this posture that Shakyamuni overcame the obstructions of Mara while meditating on Truth.

    About 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.
