alabaster reclining Shakymuni, or sleeping Buddha, in the well known pose of attaining
par nirvana. A small but beautifully hand carved Chinese sculpture made from a
single block of stone. The Buddha is in a peaceful, dozing expression, his hair
is detailed with snail curves, the figure is elongated, with a reflective alabaster
snow white color for the skin tone; whereas the lotus pedestal is thoroughly painted
in gold, the purple and green fanning fabric and the gold liners tracing folds
of his robe are mostly faded. Nevertheless, there is only a few minor surface
cracks, the statue observed no break or repair and it is in very good condition.
