SOLD Seated Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara Statue in Wood 21"
- Avalokiteshvara is a bodhisattva in the Buddhist Mahayana tradition who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas
- He wears a beautiful crown with his chest bare and his dhoti flowing over the base in gossamer ripples
- His right hand is held up in the abhaya mudra of "fear not" hand position granting his divine protection to his devotees
- The antique, verde-gris patina of Avalokiteshvara is the perfect contrast to the natural wood that surrounds the statue and the wooden base
This particular pose shows Avalokiteshvara in a very relaxed posture with his chest exposed. His leggings hang loosely between his two legs. His leg posture is quite unique as on leg is bent next to him in an uplifted position with the other hanging down. Avalokiteshvara wears a fancy head dress that combines his hair into a jeweled crown. This pose is a copy of a piece in the Sri Lankan National Museum. The statue has rich antique patina and is nestled within a natural peice of wood. Avalokiteshvara sits on a wood base that gives the sculpture a refined look.
You just know when you find the right piece to bring into your home and into your heart. - Kyle Tortora, Founder of Lotus Sculpture
Brass statues from Bali, Indonesia 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. Bali brass is meant only to be used indoors.
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. This will not remove any of the natural patina on the statue.
