Handmade Meditating Large Wooden Buddah – 40cm
Handmade Meditating Large Wooden Buddah for a calming peaceful feel to your home, garden, altar or work place.
This beautiful handmade meditating large wooden Buddha carving is hand carved by skilled members of a workers co-operative in Sukawati, suitable for indoors & outdoors.
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 it’s strength and crossed grain. A stunningly beautiful focal point to any room.
- Note: each Buddha will be slightly different as they have been handmade.

This statue is for people who are either looking for peace and clam in their lives, or for those who wish to improve their own meditation skills. People will often buy a Meditation Buddha if they want to set up a “serenity room” or a corner of their house where they can sit in calm for a little while and unwind.
In this pose, the Buddha is depicted with both hands in the lap, face up, and the legs are crossed, either in a Double Lotus pose (with the ankles of each leg tucked behind one another in a locked position), or in a Single Lotus pose (where one leg rests on top of the other leg). Occasionally, an alms bowl is placed in the lap as well.
As this statue generally represents focused concentration, the eyes of the Buddha are either depicted as halfway closed, or closed nearly all the way. The silhouette of the statue is shaped – more or less – like a triangle, which represents stability.
Many of the largest Buddha Statues in Japan, such as the Great Kamakura Buddha Statue at Kotokuin Temple, and large statues in Korea are in the Meditation Pose. This pose is also known as the Amithabha Buddha, which means “Boundless Light.”
