- double chola
The soothing image of the seated Buddha. Legs gathered in a fine padmasana; one hand in the dharmachakra mudra, the other gently bearing the almsbowl. The perfect, sustained padmasana is the culmination of one’s accomplishments in bahiranga (outer-body) yoga - the body balanced on the knees-and-hip trifecta, the heels touching each other right below the navel. The dharmachakra mudra is an expression of the cyclical nature of dharma and existence. Finally, the almsbowl is a relic of His days of mendicancy, of turning outward for nourishment.
The robe He is wearing gathers in straight-carved, uniform pleats against His gracious proportions. Wide shoulders, long limbs, well-defined digits. His countenance is lifelike; its composure, one of profound seedless samadhi. Zoom in on the same to take in the finesse and shraddha with which it has been sculpted. The aureole behind Him somewhat matches the silhouette of the figure seated in the foreground. While the pedestal is a relatively austere one, it is nevertheless an imposing element of the composition.
