Bronze Khmer Buddha. When the worship of the devaraja (the god-king), or Shiva, was replaced by the cult of the Buddharaja, images of Buddha were given regal symbols such as the diadem and crown. This devaraja still has the vestigial eye in the forehead, symbol of Shiva, but distinctly transitional features which immediately pre-figure the later Buddharaja.
Bronze Each piece you see here is made individually by our master artisans. The craftsmanship involved creates slight variations in color, finish, size, and shape - a quality we consider to be an added touch of uniqueness. The remarkable detail of our bronze sculptures is due to meticulous and labor-intensive care by Thai craftsmen to produce these unique sculptures of exquisite detail and timeless durability. Buffing, polishing, and patinising give each piece its final green-grey verdigris or bronze luster, which conveys the essence of what we at Eastern Serenity admire in South-East Asian art.
