Antique Thai stele depicting a meditating Buddha. The Buddha is sat in the Dhyana mudrÄ or 'Meditation Position'. The Dhyana Mudra hand gesture promotes the energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy. A halo can be seen behind the Buddha representing his perfection. The stele is inscribed with multiple lines of sanskrit text on its front. The rear of the Stele is decorated with the Dharmacakra (Wheel of the Law), Axe and Vase of Plenty. The style of the inscription indicates an Angkor or post-Angkor date, however the stele does not appear to be dated. Loose mounted to a wood base (later).
