Dated to the late Ming dynasty, this 17th-century bronze figure depicts the historical Buddha, known also as Shaka, Shakyamuni, or Siddhartha Gautama. Seated upon a double lotus base, the Buddha embodies virtues of wisdom and composure.

He sits with hands in the bhumisparsha mudra, a gesture representing the moment that the Buddha claimed the earth as witness to his awakening. This posture celebrates the Buddha's unwavering strength of focus as he resists distraction and temptation from the demon King Mara to achieve enlightenment. With notable wear from exposure to water and a beautiful patina, the figure has aged with rich character and exudes calm and serenity.

This figure has been set on a custom steel stand.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
