The name Gautama Buddha itself evokes feelings of peace and serenity in our minds. This exquisite brass statue of Buddha preaching his Dharma emanates warmth and calmness towards an observer. Gautama Buddha preaching his first sermon at Sarnath is a recurring motif in Buddhist art. He is seated in a full yogic pose, the ‘Padmasana’ or the lotus position with his right hand held up in the ‘Vitarka Mudra’, symbolising the flow of energy and information. His left hand can be seen resting in his lap in the ‘Dhyana Mudra’ holding an alms bowl. He wears robes with intricate patterns and an unusual shawl draped over his shoulder.
The highlight of this statue is the magnificent inlay work of green and red on his monastic robe. Unlike usual brass statues, the semi-precious stones and inlay work on this statue makes it an awe-inspiring masterpiece. The serene smile of Buddha cannot escape our eyes and it is one of his most distinguishing features. The viewers’ attention also cannot help but be drawn towards the beautifully sculpted graceful hands of Buddha. This heavenly statue is ideal for home décor, office spaces etc. and is sure to make the atmosphere tranquil and soothing.
