The Buddha Shakyamuni, at the moment of enlightenment, invoked the earth as witness, as indicated by the fingers of his right hand, which spread downward in bhumisparshanamudra, the gesture of touching the earth. As the Buddhist sutras relate, the sun and moon stood still, and all the creatures of the world came to offer obeisance to the Supreme One who had broken through the boundaries of egocentric existence. All Buddhist art celebrates this supreme moment and leads the viewer toward the Buddha's experience of selfless and unsurpassed enlightenment. The earliest forms of Buddhist art were semiabstract: bodhi-trees, wheels, stupas, and even the Buddha's stylized footprints served as supports for contemplating what was ultimately beyond words or form. As the Buddha himself continually taught, it was not he who was to be revered but the possibility he presented. Don't look to me, he said, but to the enlightened state.

The first anthropomorphic representations of the Buddha are said to have been drawn on canvas from rays of golden light emanating from his body. Later Buddhist art pictured the Buddha in numerous manifestations, but always as an archetype of human potential, never as a historically identifiable person. All forms of the Buddha, however, are commonly shown seated on a lotus throne, a symbol of the mind's transcendent nature. As a lotus rises from the mud to bloom unsullied in open space, so too does the mind rise throught the discord of its own experience to blossom in the boundlessness of unconditional awareness. The word 'Buddha' too in Sanskrit means "to be awakened." Indeed expressed in art, Buddhas are not objects of worship, but mirrors of our innermost being, icons of the journey from ignorance to illumination.

Calmly poised and with a benevolent demeanor, the Shakyamuni sits dominating the central part of the composition. His extended earlobes, now empty of adornment, were stretched out of shape by the weight of the costly jewelry he wore before renouncing his princely status. The two discerning marks of Buddhahood, namely the urna (mark between the brows), and ushnisha (bump on the head) are displayed here. Another of the major signs of the Buddha's body is his deep and resonant voice, which is artistically symbolized here by three conch-like curving lines on his throat. His lips though are lightly pursed like two delicate flower petals just about to bloom, as if symbolizing his new found ability to deliver his first sermon.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
