Beautiful Buddha Statue

Mandalay Style/Burma around 1900

This grace­ful stat­ue of the young Bud­dha is carved, red-col­ored and leaf gild­ed. The juve­nile Bud­dha stands on a lotus blos­som on a pedestal, the head is aston­ish­ing­ly elab­o­rat­ed with the eyes in fine­ly made glass stones, char­ac­ter­is­tic for the Burmese Bud­dha fig­ures, con­sid­ered to be the most beau­ti­ful Bud­dha stat­ues of all. 

The hair is fine­ly exe­cut­ed with dense nubs and the Ush­nisha, sym­bol for his wis­dom and high­est achieve­ment of spir­i­tu­al reliance. The beau­ti­ful dia­dem and the monk seal are exten­sive­ly dec­o­rat­ed with orna­men­tal and flo­ral glass stones and small, orna­men­tal and blos­som-shaped mir­ror plates. In his right hand he holds a fruit between his thumb and mid­dle fin­ger, a sym­bol for fertility.

This touch­ing stat­ue of the young Bud­dha radi­at­es such a grace­ful, calm aura, and the rich, elab­o­rate monk seal will make this object to a won­der­ful high­light in every Interior.
