This statue was commissioned by a king of the Khmer Dynasty to venerate the Hindu gods. The monuments of Angkor can be referred to as the ultimate "Art of Tranquility". The intricately carved and elegantly serene works in wood or stone are fine examples of the Khmer's hope for peace and humble respect toward nature.

 The statue was first carved in wood at Artisans Angkor’s wood workshops. Several layers of plastering were applied to the statue to smooth out its surface and ease the painting job. Then some time was dedicated by the artisan to the sophisticated engraving details of the piece, such as the small carving and embossed patterns, which is probably the longest part of the process. After some drying time, the statue is painted and gilded by hand, by applying the copper leaves directly on the statue. The statue is then varnished and covered with patina to reproduce the aspect of the ancient statuary.

 This statue represents the sixth Pāramitā, which is a state of perfection in which the human being is not trapped in the cycle of Samsara anymore. Released from suffering, the enlightened soul can wander freely around the highest spheres of wisdom and happiness.
