Hand-Carved & Painted Wooden Buddha
This is a one of the most beautiful collectible hand-carved wooden statue we offer. This sculpture depicts a meditating Buddha, with both his palms open and resting on his feet. This masterpiece is carved entirely from a single block of highly prized crocodile wood to maintain the sculpture's integrity and quality. Crocodile wood is naturally white and dense.
This magnificent sculpture was first carved, fine and smooth polished to its natural white wood appearance. The grains are visible and extremely attractive which adds depth to this masterpiece. After further drying, a dedicated painter (supposedly, only a handful of such artists can do such detail paintings in the whole of Bali) painted a peaceful scene throughout Buddha's robe using acrylic paint. Further drying followed. Finally, a layer of clear lacquer was applied to the final work to give it a clear shiny protection coating. This has to be done when the paintings are absolutely dry to avoid any smearing. After the lacquer applications, the sculpture was let to dry for at least another week. All in all, the process to create this magnificent piece takes more than 8 weeks.
