With closed eyes and a gentle expression, this large stone head depicts the Shakyamuni Buddha in calm meditation. Also known as Shaka, Gautama Buddha, or Prince Siddhartha, the historic Buddha Shakyamuni embodies virtues of wisdom and compassion and guides others in their journey towards enlightenment. This statue is hand-carved from a porous stone and displays the many characteristic features of the Buddha - tightly curled hair, elongated ears, and downcast eyes.

With its realistic features, oval face, and porous stone material, this stone carving is similar in appearance to those found at the Buddhist monument of Candi Borobudur, located in Central Java, Indonesia. A later recreation of those ancient forms, this example nevertheless commands its surroundings with its timeworn beauty and boundless serenity.

“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.”
