Buddha is the one who has attained bodhi or enlightenment by
his supreme patience, excellence and practical approach of life. His teachings
are a way of guiding people towards a purposeful, knowledgeable and happy
lifestyle. Namaste or Anjali Mudra is a gesture of greeting the guests and
welcoming their divine aspect; it is an expression of obeisance, salutation,
adoration and reverence which the sculptor has beautifully carved in this
copper Buddha sculpture. Nepalese sculptures are best known for religious
figures made of bronze or copper and the artisans take major inspirational
subjects from Buddhism and Hinduism as these two religions peacefully coexist
even today in Nepal.
This copper Buddha statue from Nepal is sculpted very
graciously and justifiably with palms joined together and pressing each other. One
of the most attractive part is that the stylish robe is chiseled briefly with
undistorted pleats and an amazing combination of light and dark hues giving it
a sassy look. His head with coiled hairs matted up together is framed in a
dazzling crown, having a beautiful border of flowers and vines with accurate
markings. The marvellous patterns and superfine carvings of this Buddha
sculpture is suggestive of the perfection of sculptor’s skills.
Designed with his characteristic features of long earlobes
and curved lines on the neck, this statue, wherever placed, can bring a delicate
smile and respect on the viewer’s face because of its unique and fine
attributes. As you focus on the facial features, you will applaud the sharpness
of its carves, having a long pointed nose, half close eyes, a small bindi on
forehead symbolic of his third eye of wisdom and the natural curve of lips.
Placing this at the entrance gate will be a sweet gesture of respect and a
great ornamentation to the place.
