This 'Padmasana' image of Buddha is in meditative posture, which is its prime theme and the basic character of the moment which it depicts. Mara's attack and other related activity are only a passing phase. Hence, but for his right hand lowered to touch the mother Earth, his entire form manifests him in his meditative demeanour, which his left hand so absolutely symbolises. Broad forehead, sharp nose, cute small lips, pointed chin and semi-opened lotus like eyes define the aesthetic beauty of his face. His shoulders are sturdy. The left half of his torso is covered by fine sash marked over the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism.
This sculpture was cast in the central Indian city of Aligarh.
