Description The figure of Buddha in royal attire seated on a seven-headed naga was a popular Mahayana image during the thirteenth century.  It originated in Nagarjunakonda in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh and developed further in Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia. 
This interpretation of this image as the naga Muchalinda protecting the enlightened Buddha during a storm is now refuted as a later Theravada reading.  It is most likely the supreme Adi Buddha of the Tantric tradition, with the naga representing the rising of subtle energy (kundalini) through the seven energy centers (chakra) in the practitioners body in his progress to enlightenment.  The highest chakra points, the throat and had -  where enlightenment is said to take place -  are represented here on the nagas's chest and hood. 
from Enlightened Ways, The Many Streams of Buddhist Art in Thailand

Care

Brass statues from Cambodia 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.  As they are brass, they can be used both indoors and outdoors.    Although if the statue has a black wooden base it is not recommended for the outdoors as the base will show signs of wear over time outside.

"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.

The delivery charges include insurance, a residential lift gate delivery to your home or business. The freight company will call you to schedule a delivery day and time frame to make the delivery. Someone must be present to receive the statue. Depending on where you are located we will use either R&L Carriers, UPS Freight, Estes, DHX or Roadrunner Transport.
The freight company will use a lift gate to bring the sculpture to the ground and then use a pallet jack to move it anywhere on the same level. They will move it anywhere in your driveway or in your garage. They will not take it to your backyard or in the elevator to your apartment or up or down any steps. They will not be unpacking the statue and taking the crate away. Think of them as you would UPS or Fedex. They only deliver the statue. If you require a little extra service, (within reason) a tip to a delivery man usually works wonders!
For placing the statue our customers have either placed the statue themselves with help of a friend and a tool like a hand truck or a dolly. Or by contacting their landscaper who is used to moving large and heavy objects like rocks and trees into place. For much larger and heavier sculptures sometimes the customer needs a piece of heavy equipment for placing the statue like a crane or forklift.
