19th Century Khmer Meditation Buddha
Ca. early 19th century Buddha from Cambodia. Beautiful design and patina. Wonderful presence. The Buddha is seated in the Dhyana mudrā or 'Meditation Position'. The hands in Dhyana Mudra, the hand gesture that promotes the energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. In the hands the Buddha holds an alms bowl, a gesture of charity and compassion. He has a large ushnisha protuberance on top of his head that symbolizing his high level of spiritual development.

19th Century Antique U Thong Enlightenment Boat Buddha
Ca. 19th century Thai bronze Buddha Shakyamuni in U Thong style. The Buddha is seated, in virasana, cross-legged symbol of Serenity, with both hands in the Bhumisparsa or 'Calling Earth to Witness' mudr?. With fingers slightly touching the ground this position represents the subduing of Mara (a demon) who bombarded Buddha with demons, monsters, violent storms and the three seductive daughters. Remaining steadfast the Buddha testified to his meritorious past by pointing to the earth and calling the Earth Goddess, Thorani. Rising from the ground the Earth Goddess wrings the water from her long black hair. By this action she raises a torrential flood that drowns Mara and his army of demons. This gesture reflects this story symbolizing enlightenment, as well as steadfastness and Buddha’s achievement of perfection or nirvana. The Buddha is seated in a boat. Each side comes up in a stylized point much like the royal boats that paddle on the river Choa Praya in Bangkok during royal river processions. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. He has a large lotus flower shaped ushnisha protuberance on top of his head that symbolizing his high level of spiritual development. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. Please contact us for high resolution images of the piece. HD Asian Art
19th Century Antique Khmer Style Bronze Apsara or Angel
Ca. 19th century antique Khmer style bronze Apsara or Heavenly angel. The Apsara is a female spirit of the clouds and waters in Hindu and Buddhist mythology – a ‘celestial nymph’ or ‘celestial maiden’.Apsaras are beautiful, supernatural female beings. They are youthful and elegant, and superb in the art of dancing. They are often the wives of the Gandharvas, the court musicians of Indra. They dance to the music made by the Gandharvas, usually in the palaces of the gods, entertain and sometimes seduce gods and men. As caretakers of fallen heroes, they may be compared to the valkyries of Norse mythology. As etherial beings who inhabit the skies, and are often depicted taking flight, or at service of a god, they may be compared to Angels. Apsaras are said to be able to change their shape at will, and rule over the fortunes of gaming and gambling. They are also associated with fertility rites. The Apsara has been mounted on a wood base (later). Please contact us for high resolution images of the piece. HD Asian Art
