Lord Buddha is the founder of Buddhism- a religion followed majorly in Nepal and Tibet. Buddha’s all actions are revered in various ways; like the one shown here is the Bhumisparsha mudra, where his right hand touches the ground as a gesture of him inviting mother earth to witness his attained enlightenment. Left hand holds the begging bowl or the alms bowl, defining him as the head of the order and also symbol of differentiation between luxury and necessity.
Available here in two unique colors- natural brass and double chola, this sculpture iconographies Buddha in its usual ways of high joint brows, pointed nose, long earlobes, wavy dot as his third eye of wisdom and three lines on his neck; but the essence of his presence and that finite carvings spreads an aura of auspiciousness.
Have a look at the extremely beautiful round and long karnaphool and matching choker that he adorns and a complementing big pointed crown, carved in amazing patterns. The robe that he garbs is weaved in a charming three-layered border all over. The smooth texture and glow of his sculpture highlights sculptor’s immense skills and perfection.
