  • The creation of a walking Buddha image is a distinctive feature of Thai art from the thirteenth century onwards
  • Considered one of the four postures of the Buddha: the others are sitting, standing, and reclining
  • In the Thai language, the walking Buddha is just called "graceful" ("lila")
  • This pose represents the Buddha in walking meditation directly after his enlightenment
  • This Buddha is depicted walking with his right hand in the abhaya mudra, a gesture of protection and reassurance
  • He has a wave-like flow and walking style with broad shoulders and hips, while his head is facing slightly downwards
  • The entire statue including the Buddha's arms, legs and body have a  pattern that naturally flows and gives the figure the appearance of hovering while still in motion
