Smiling a slightly intellectual smile, the golden-bodied Buddha is sitting in the padmasana on a lotus pedestal with one leg crossed over the other. The left hand is placed in his lap in the dhyana (meditation) mudra. The right meanwhile gently touches the base, a reminder of the historical moment in the eventful life of the Buddha when he gently nudged Mother Earth into acknowledging his spiritual triumph resulting in the attainment of Nirvana.

His hair (colored a typical blue in Nepal), is made of snail like crawling curls. The sculptor's intimate acquaintance with the spiritual aesthetics of Buddha's image is evident in the number of supernatural signs of greatness. These are:

1). The bump at the top of the head known as ushnisha. This signifies wisdom.

2). The elongated earlobes symbolizing renunciation. Before enlightenment, Buddha was born as prince Siddhartha in the lap of luxury. Numerous large and heavy jewels once hung from his ears during the royal days.

3). The curl between the eyebrows (urna). This represents discrimination (viveka).

4). The three conch-like curving lines on the neck. These suggest the sweetness of his speech.

The Buddha wears a monastic robe, with finely delineated folds and a gold hemmed border, which covers both shoulders. His lips are soft and gentle. The realistically delinetaed eyes are framed at the top by arched brows. The nose is well-formed and sharp. The straight poised head complements the erect held body in meditative introspection.

This sculpture was created by Shri Madan Prajapati of Patan, Kathmandu (Nepal).

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thanks for everything. I am really impressed with the statue, the packaging and the service. It's absolutely beautiful!
Anir, UK
Thank you for allowing me to shop in India from my desk in the United States!! I love your website! Om Shanthi

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
