<p>Exclusive to the British Museum, this is a reproduction of one of the finest known Burmese sculptures of the Pagan Period. <br /> <br /> Moulded from the 12-13th century bronze original, the Buddha is shown touching the earth with his right hand, recalling the moment when he called upon the Earth to witness his Enlightenment. This posture, or mudr, is extremely common among Burmese images of the Buddha. <br /> <br /> At the height of its prosperity the city of Pagan, where this statue originated from, was a flourishing and important Buddhist centre. Thousands of temples were built in the city, and even today in its abandoned and ruined state, approximately 2,000 survive. Stylistically the influence of eastern Indian sculptural traditions is still strong. <br /> <br /> The replica is moulded from the original in the department of Asia.</p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a replica of a seated Buddha.

This resin replica has been moulded from a 12th-13th century Burmese bronze original from the Pagan Period, now housed in the Museum’s Department of Asia. The Buddha is shown touching the ground with his right hand, recalling the moment when he called upon the Earth to witness his Enlightenment. This posture, or mudra, is extremely common among Burmese images of the Buddha.

The original statue originates from the city of Pagan (modern-day Bagan), which was once a flourishing and important Buddhist centre. At the height of its prosperity, thousands of temples were built, most heavily influenced by eastern Indian sculptural traditions, and many remain standing today.

A striking home ornament celebrating Buddhist culture.
