Unusual Buddha Image in Samut Sakhon

I’m always on the lookout for unusual or rare Buddha images. I saw this one posted today on the Facebook page of Aungkana Pumpaka. She didn’t give much information other than to say it was taken at Wat Tha Mai in Samut Sakhon (วัดท่าไม้ จ.สมุทรสาคร). Click here to see what I think is the location of the temple on a map. I have made a note to visit the next time I am in that area and will confirm this for you. From the picture, it looks like the Buddha is holding his hands up to his ears. What is also unusual is the way he is crossing his legs.

Let me know in the comments if you know of any other unusual Buddha images in Thailand.
