The blissful smile of triumph playing upon the Buddhas lips records his Victory over Mara, the Evil One, at the moment of Enlightenment. The downcast, lotus bud eyes contemplate the ignominy of Maras army, the vanities of the world, when the Buddhist Devil failed to seduce the Buddha with promises of worldly power, wealth and pleasure. The Buddhas sublime expression convey supreme confidence in the powers of mind over the forces of Ignorance.
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.
