Beautiful Naga Buddha statue. 4.3 kg.
Nāga is the Sanskrit and Pali word for a class of supernatural creatures in Buddhism and Hinduism, which often have the appearance of a snake or dragon.
Naga Buddha statues are the rarest Buddhist artefacts on earth. These special Buddha statues have not been released as much as the Shakyamuni Buddha statues. That is the reason why many Buddhist and antique art collectors see the Naga Buddha statues as the pearls of their personal collection. The Naga Buddha statues are considered by many followers of Buddhism as a very important religious and spiritual object because it depicts Buddha as being protected by the snake. This shows the trusting protection of the enlightened by the king of snakes.
