There is something about the seated Buddha image. Something very calming; something that serves to centre the onlooker in a way few works of art can. The Enlightened One gathers His legs in the finest padmasana - the hip-and-knee trifecta on the same plane, soles of the feet facing skywards, the heels drawn directly below the navel - and raises the right hand in vitarka mudra, the gesture of the one possessed of knowledge and wisdom. That stately head with its stoopa-like silhouette of the hair, balanced on that slender neck. The lengthened earlobes that set off its singular beauty, the three engraved lines on which are indicative of the sweet sound of the conch. The almsbowl in the palm of His left hand on the lap, a remnant of His days of mendicancy. The erstwhile Shakyamuni exudes an irreplicable sattvik gravity.
The murti that you see on this page features a dark, almost black, finish with gold overtones. Black, the colour of sattvaguna, adds to the poise of the Buddha. His robe is chequered across the surface, each panel having been engraved with identical flowers, the four petals filling up each corner of the quadrilateral. A wide-set lotus pedestal to accommodate His long, folded limbs. Two layers of petals are indicative of one gigantic bloom atop another turned upside down.
