whose advent the hopes of millions rest, that Future Buddha or Maitreya (the
friendly one) is depicted in this exquisite copper Nepalese
statue in a distinctive posture, which is uniquely associated with him.
Seated with both legs in the front, in the Bhadrasana, also known as the European
ease posture, Maitreya is adorned brilliantly and has his glory amplified with
the use of pure gold in the statue. With his hands, Maitreya makes the gesture
of Dhammachakrapravartana, symbolizing the turning of the Wheel of Dhamma, when
he descends into the human realm.
