The reclining Buddha represents Shakyamuni.  It is said that the Buddha knew death was approaching and asked his disciples to prepare a couch for him in a grove of trees.  He lay there, reclining on his right side, facing west, with his head supported by his hand….. as he passed into nirvana.

 

This is a lovely piece with beautiful carvings and a few jewels.  Acquired from an estate sale in St Petersburg Florida.  USA.

 

In very good condition.

 

This item is SOLD.  Thanks M.S. !
