Description

Finely carved with Buddha seated on the coiled naga, the seven-headed cobra rising to form a mandorla,
the details finely incised, the face with a serene expression, almondshaped eyes and a benevolent smile.

He is represented virasana sitting on the rings of the naga whose 7 heads serve him canopy.

His hands are in dhyanamudra.

The expression on his face is full of serenity. His eyes are half open and looking down slightly.

Mucalinda, also Muchalinda or Mucilinda, is the name of a naga sheltering
the Buddha from the elements after his enlightenment.

When a storm raged and torrential rain fell for a whole week, the king of the nagas,
Muchalinda, rose from the earth, coiling its body to form a seat and swelled
its great hood to shelter Buddha.

When the great storm had cleared, the serpent king assumed his human form, bowed before the Buddha, and returned to his palace.

Seven-headed nagas are often depicted as guardian statues, carved as balustrades on causeways leading to main Cambodian temples.
