  • Description
  • Reviews

This Serene Meditating Buddha with his simple, elegantly draped robe has a bald head, an attribute scholars believe was true of the living Buddha. Carved entirely by hand (front, sides, and back) from non-endangered suar wood, the naturally occurring contrasts of light and dark assure that each sculpture is one-of-a-kind. (Suar wood’s interlocking grain ensures it will not crack in drier climates.)  9"h. x 10"w. x 5"d.
