Description This wood Buddha in standing position was executed in a typical Laotian style, which features a slim and elongated body and extremely serene facial expression. His hands are in the gesture of double Abhaya mudra. This mudra symbolizes the act of dispelling fear in the face of adversity. In Laos and Thailand, this gesture was likely used before the onset of Buddhism as a symbol of good intentions to propose friendship when approaching strangers. In contrast to Indian iconography, it was often shown with both hands raised to the level of the shoulder in Southeast Asia.
