Bust of a Buddha (Chieng Sen Style)
15th century
Gift of John Adams Thierry in memory of Louis Sidney Thierry
1993/2.47
The Buddha in bhumisparsa mudra (the gesture of touching the earth with his right hand, palm inward), signaling his victory over Mara. In Southeast Asian contexts, this hand gesture is often referred to as Maravijaya mudra, or &quot;victory over Mara.&quot; The Buddha&rsquo;s elongated earlobes refer to his early life as a prince, when he wore heavy earrings. Texts that describe how a Buddha&rsquo;s face should look often use comparisons to natural forms such as eyes like lotus petals, eyebrows like an archer&rsquo;s bow, and a chin like a mango stone. The artist who created this sculpture clearly followed similar instructions.
