This sitting Buddha with naga sandstone amulet pendant is mounted in an antique brass frame. It is similar to the larger one that is currently sold out. This one is petite and is really cute! This amulet is an artistic representation of the folklore of the naga (or snake), believed to shelter the Buddha while in meditation. The umbrella formed over the head of the seated Buddha image is thought to be that of a multi-headed king cobra (also called the mucilanda.) The Buddha’s cushion is thought to be the coiled body of the naga (snake) with the 7 pronged head providing a hood over the Buddha to protect and shelter from the elements. The Buddha with naga imagery is popular in Myanmar (Burma), Laos and Thailand.
