Southeast Asia, Cambodia, late Khmer period (Angkor culture), ca. 15th century CE. A cast bronze statue of a seated Buddha, depicted on a tall throne. He has a prominent ushnisha and sits with his legs crossed and his hands in the Bhumisparsa Mudra, the "earth witness", one of the most iconic poses of Buddhism. His left palm is upright in his lap and his right hand reaches down past his robes - here depicted in a lifelike and flowing manner - to touch the earth. This mudra comes from the story of Buddha asking Prthivi, the spirit of the earth, to witness his enlightenment when he was threatened by the king demon, Mara. This figure was probably made to be placed in a home altar. Size: 1.8" W x 3.35" H (4.6 cm x 8.5 cm); 4.7" H (11.9 cm) on included custom stand.
