    brown sandstone buddha in touching the earth mudra

    Thailand
    11 cm high 5 cm wide
    18th - 19th century

     
    This Buddha still retains traces of gold leaf. The posture, the 'earth witness' mudra is formed with all five fingers of the right hand extended to touch the ground. This stance symbolizes the Buddha's enlightenment under the bodhi tree, when he summoned the earth goddess, Sthavara, to bear witness to his attainment of enlightenment and to combat the forces of Mara, dispatched to prevent his enlightenment.
     
    Wear consistent with age.
     
    If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase.
