Description A statue of a standing Buddha (Shakyamuni), finely carved out a single block of wood (might be cypress based on the wood grains). Attired in a flowing robe with open chest, the Buddha is depicted standing with both of his hands in Vitarka Mudra. The mudra signifies the transmission of his wisdom and teachings. The realistic styling of the Buddha with its benevolent facial expression and the central protrusion on his head among large hair knots was popular in China during Ming dynasty. The statue was likely poly-chrome colored at one time as there is still blue pigment residue remaining on the hairs as well as the lower part of his robe. As an estate collection piece without provenance, we estimate that the statue was likely made during Qing dynasty in the Ming style (19th century) although it is possibly much older. We encourage you to seek for independent expert advice before purchasing.
