Dharmachakra Buddha With The Eyes Shut on Three-Layered Lotus

Dharmachakra Buddha With The Eyes Shut on Three-Layered Lotus
$1295.00
Over a pedestal of two lotuses towers the seated figure of the Buddha. An asana of silk beneath the superb padmasana of His legs. From the way the folds of His robe gather around them and the pleats on the asana beneath Him, to the subtle angle of curvature of the tips of the petals, every aspect of this composition has been finished with perfect symmetry and lifelike precision.

The knees-and-hip trifecta rests on a parallel plane. The soles of the feet are turned skyward, the heels gathered just below the navel. The padmasana of the Buddha is the culmination of all asanas, the pathway to pranayama and bahiranga yoga. A tall, stately torso down which cascades the silken folds of His robe. Afore His chest, the gracious fingers of His long, slender hands gesture (‘dharma’) the dharmachakra (‘chakra’ is the Sanskrt word for wheel; stands for the cyclical). The tips of the thumb and a finger of the right hand touch to form a circle, indicative of the inner world; the curvaceous fingers of the left, indicative of the outer world.

An irresistibly handsome brow, the eyes beneath which are gently shut. A gorgeous, Grecian nose and lips as tender as the petals of a young lotus bloom. A meticulously carved head of hair. Thin lateral sections on either side of the composition feature a distinctively washed out tint of the earthy colour of the wood medium, adding to the unconventional aesthetics of the work.
