This Buddhist monk statue is covered with gold leaves, often an indication that the statue belonged to a monastery. Often local patrons would commission stone carving specialist to create a Buddhist figure to be donated to a local temple or monastery, believing it would bring themselves luck for showing extra devotion. This elegantly executed stone carving shows a Buddhist monk in its monk shoes dressed in an understated monk rope. Size: 7" by 6.25" by 23.5". Weight: 60 lbs.
