I instantly fell in love with the warm, gentle feeling of this beautiful large and simple Buddha when I found him, carved in Alabaster, in Northern Thailand. His hair style is the same as I found often in Sagaing, the area with 100s of monasteries and nunneries across the river from Mandalay and is reminicent of the 4th-5th century Gandahar style but I have not yet found an explaination for this.
I simple love him and I want to make him more affordable for people who would like him. He is currently only available on my web site so I can reduce his price significantly below normal retail. His normal price would be $950.00.
PS. I find it hard to reconcile the gentleness of Burmese images, the intelligence and kindness of the Burmese people I have met, the brilliance of the Burmese teachings I have experienced on retreat in Sagaing, Burma and the treatment of the Rohngya and Muslims. So, these statues of the Buddha can be of assistance I will donate 10% of the retail price of all the Burmese Buddhas is sell from this web site to an organization which helps provide food and shelter them.
