The distinguishing aspect of this wide-bottomed Buddha composition is the glamorous golden colour. The Sanskrt word for gold is ‘svarna’; ‘svarnima’ stands for that which is golden. A fine example of brass sculpture, the element of gold in Indian Hindoo-Buddhist iconography has little to do with materialistic plenty. Gold stands for the shining light of vidya (knowledge or, more appropriately, awareness), the colour of all-encompassing sustainability and nobility.

The Buddha is nothing less than svarnima. After years of renunciation of a princely life, severe asceticism in the unforgiving wilderness of North India, abject mendicancy, and yogic introspection, the light had finally descended on Him. Under the Bodhi tree He had attained Buddhahood and, as proof of His status, delivered the dharmachakraparivartana sermon to the finest teachers of the time. In this murti, His hand is in the vitarkamudra, the gesture (mudra) of deliberation and debate (vitarka).

Note how a richly embroidered robe is carved over this monotone composition, distinguished from the exposed parts of the skin at His wrist and ankle and upper torso. A straight-sculpted face, the expression on it solemn. His lengthened earlobes are pierced for insertion of the kundalas. High-precision sculpture of the hair. Finally, a superfine pedestal - the usual double-tiers of lotus petals, but one that predomiantes the elements of the iconography.

Seated atop a vast lotus-form as lustrous as His own form, Lord Buddha is depicted in this unusual brass sculpture in the vitarka mudra that stands for dialogue and/or teaching (the circle formed by the thumb and the index finger symbolizes the cyclical flow of energy and information). Pick this one for a resplendent addition to your space.
