This Vitarka Mudra Cambodian Buddha statue from Dharma Sculpture is seated in dhyana asana, the meditative pose also called padmasana, with his hands in vitarka mudra.
Vitarka mudra is interpreted as the hand gesture that evokes the energy of teaching and intellectual discussion, or argument. It mostly feels like the transmission of a particular teaching with no words, and the circle formed by the thumb and index finger creates a constant flow of energy and information.
The art of wood sculpture goes back to the glorious epoch of the Khmer empire and the monumental constructions that gave rise to the Angkor temples. Dharma Sculpture's artisans have inherited patience and meticulousness from their ancestors in the trade. They have learned to capture the movements used in olden times and master the traditional tools in order to adapt to their personal lines of work.
This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand-carved by the artists of Cambodia.
Dharma Sculpture is a quality conscious company that specializes in Buddhist sculpture from Asia, particularly Nepal, Cambodia, Indonesia, and Myanmar (Burma). They purchase only the highest quality pieces for their online gallery. Today with so much that is mass-produced it can be difficult to distinguish between quality, handmade pieces, and mass-produced icons. Each one of their statues is carefully hand produced.
