Wat Pho Buddha Stone Statue
Wat Pho is a Buddhist temple in Bangkok that houses one of the largest representations of Buddha. This delightful piece is a very accurate, although smaller, recreation of the 'Reclining Buddha' sculpture. It has been handcrafted in reconstituted stone, a material that has been around for centuries, with an appearance almost identical to that of quarried stone.
Specialist craftsmen have crafted this piece by hand to ensure that every sculpture is finished to a high standard. Reconstituted stone has been around for centuries but first became very popular in stately homes in the 16th century. In the 20th century the method of creating reconstituted stone improved so that it became possible to create sculptures that are even more durable and hard wearing.
