This magnificent statue of a Thai Buddha captures him in one of his more regal depictions. The Buddha sits in deep meditation with his legs folded in the lotus position and his hands in his lap with the palms up. His curled hair is a symbol of his lack of concern with his appearance, though he radiates a richness that is beyond any material comparison. Some say that the curls on his head are not hair, but snails that settled on his head due to the long amount of time he spent in meditation. The richly decorated robes of the Buddha contrast with his lean, ascetic form and placid expression. This is not a man who is concerned with his title, his garments, or anything else so worldly. Instead he focuses inward, as indicated by his closed eyes. The eyes are slightly enlarged. This is a representation of Buddha’s wisdom as it implies that he sees more than the unenlightened ever could. The point on his forehead represents the light that flows forth from an enlightened mind. The robes and are a reminder of Buddha’s noble beginnings. He was a prince before he decided to pursue the life of a wandering ascetic. The decorations also have a deeper and more spiritual meaning. In giving up his worldly things Buddha became a worthier man. Here that worth is depicted in his rich clothing. This splendid statue is a striking example of the beauty of Oriental craftsmanship. It will also serve as fine decoration and simultaneously add beauty and charm to any indoor space.
