Carved by hand of crocodile wood, this lovely image depicts Buddha seated in deep meditation. His eyes are closed, hands in lap with thumbs together, as the nerve channel related with enlightenment passes through the thumbs. Gung Gus paints the gilded sculpture in beautiful colors, detailing lotus blossoms on the flowing robe.
