Description

Fine example of a 'Thai Buddha'. Most Buddhas depicted in the West are of the rather stout 'Laughing Buddha' or 'Travelling Buddha', the images of which originate from China. The 'Thai Buddha' is an altogether more svelte depiction. Obviously these are individual works of art, so each one will vary from the photos shown.

Our beautiful Buddha carvings are hand carved for us by skilled members of a workers co-operative in Sukawati, Bali. The Buddhas are carved from The Indian Rain Tree, known locally as 'Suar' wood, which is not indigenous to the region, but was originally introduced by the Dutch, and is plantation grown. 'Suar' wood has been extensively used for larger carvings, and some furniture production, due to its strength and crossed grain.
