Monk's Head Statue

$193.00

A very rare piece from Ngapali, Myanmar, which depicts the head of a monk.

Interestingly artist Mr. Miao choose used pressed coconut shell for his creation. Such statues are often created as symbol of peace and compassion. Monk statues often commemorate the monastic community - those who took the path of renunciation of material pleasures and desires, in order to follow Buddha teachings and practise mindfulness.

Symbolically, the monk features become one with the medium, blending in with natural lines of the coconut, making the monk's image disappear when we change the angle. This speaks of the nature of monk's path, which calls to to dissolve of the notion of  "self" or ego by letting go of desires through various meditative practises.
