Lord Buddha is the embodiment of peace, compassion, and happiness. The variation in the iconography of Buddha statues reflects through various hand gestures and sitting postures. In this idol, Buddha’s right hand is in Vitarka Mudra that represents him in the state when he is transmitting teachings to the disciples while his left hand holds a begging bowl for alms.
Exotic India presents a brass statue of Lord Buddha with fine inlay work on his robe studded with colorful gemstones. The floral pattern of copper wires and beads integrated along with ornamental stones in turquoise, sapphire, and ruby red is done with great precision and accuracy. If you see the statute carefully, you will realize that the entire robe is lined with elegant gemstone and thin piping of small brass beads on either side. The artist has gone for fine detailing in every aspect be it a facial expression, superfine garments, or mudras. The symmetry of eyebrows, nose, and lips is commendable. Lord Buddha is in an awakened state wherein he is trying to convey a message to his devotees even without saying a word. The naturally carved coiled hair resting on top features his iconic stature marvelously. The finishing of metallic work with ornamental stones on Lord Buddha’s statue enhances its grandeur and speaks accolades about the artist’s creativity.
