Lord Buddha statues are carved in their iconic structures, but the one shown here shares a vibe of uniqueness and beauteousness with the viewer. Shakyamuni was the one who attained enlightenment in first place and hence gave rise to Buddhism, a religion followed intensively in Tibet. The erectness and stance of this sculpture conveys Buddha’s concentration to achieve his goals.
He sits in Padmasana on a double layered lotus pedestal, elongated at the bottom and structured in an elegant manner. Zoom in to praise the smooth flow of his robe that veils his body in its usual way, highlighting the bare chest on right and covering the rest; his robe is carved with thick borders at the edges and the Ashtamangala symbols featured all over ascend its holiness. Exotic India feels delighted to be able to provide you with two alluring shades of black-green combo and a blend of gold and beige of this Buddha statue.
Gautama Buddha blesses the devotees of Abhaya (fearlessness) from his right hand and left rests on his lap. Notice the sculptor’s precision of shapes and cuts while carving this statue, by having sharp and smooth folded knees, chisels on his fingers and sacred symbol on palm, pointed nose, gentle curve of the lips and the high browed eyes closed in deep meditation. The long earlobes are a reminiscence of him being a prince whose earlobes had extended because he wore heavy kundals earlier, three lines on neck and short coiled hair at the top are a part of his natural iconography.
