monk sculpture

This is a Chinese wood sculpture from the Seattle Asian Art Museum entitled "Monk at the Moment of Enlightenment". I visited the museum a couple weeks ago, and even though it wasn't the first time I'd seen it, this sculpture really left a strong impression on me. The look on his face, the movement of the body and robes... I really like it.

This is a very nice piece. I have purchased some statues before. The fake ones can never look like this.

What a great piece! This can be a very beautiful addition to my collections of budha and monks statues.
