Stone Sukothai Sitting Buddha
Images often had a flame-shaped aureole, finely curled hair, a slight smile. As this statue generally represents focused concentration, the eyes of the Buddha are either depicted as halfway closed, or closed nearly all the way. The silhouette of the statue is shaped - more or less - like a triangle, which represents stability. In this pose, the Buddha is depicted with both hands in the lap, face up, and the legs are crossed. Material: Volcanic ash with cement mixture. Protect during winter months by covering with plastic or simply bring in under a covered porch or garage. Approx. 9x3.75x11.5"H.
