'None else but fear is thy enemy, thy death, disease and distress. Overcome fear and then there is no death, no disease, no distress for thee. Not death but fear is thy problem and redemption from fear is thy redemption from death', says Buddha, the universal teacher and the benevolent Lord of compassion. 'Abhaya', the freedom from fear, is, thus, the essence of Buddha's philosophy. 'Abhaya' is an essential element of votive iconography of all sects in India and beyond, but in most of them it is granted against outside enemies, the evil and destructive forces. In Buddhist thought, the enemy is within. It is fear. Buddha leads the mind beyond fear and is thus the lord of 'Abhaya' or fearlessness. Thus, 'Abhaya', the posture imparting fearlessness, has a different and unique significance in Buddha's iconography.

This magnificent image of Lord Buddha represents him in 'Abhaya-mudra'. The Lord of fearlessness is seated on a fully bloomed large lotus in 'padmashana' posture. His well composed face, attitude of left hand, largely shut eyes and sublimity enshrining his entire being represent him in meditation. It seems, as if his right hand has ejected rising in 'Abhaya', although in Buddhist iconography it is not a mere reflex action. In Buddhist way, 'Abhaya' and meditation are co-related. Meditation is the search within where inhabits the prime enemy fear. The 'Abhaya', for oneself as well as for the universe, becomes manifest only after one has entered deep within him, discovered the enemy and has defeated it. Other Indian deities, while imparting 'Abhaya' by one hand, carry in other different weapons. Buddha's images are armed with meditation as it is in meditation that he had discovered his subtlest weapon securing 'Abhaya'.

This 85 cm. tall and 60 cm. wide lofty image of Lord Buddha cast in brass by lost wax technique weighs 36 kilogram. It has the look of a bronze of Chola tradition. A multi-petalled lotus, cast with oval front and angular back, constitutes the 'pitha' or base for the image. The body-garments of the seated image lay scattered in fine surges all over the top of this 'pitha'. A broad sash is tied around his waist. As fine is his 'Uttariya', a large shawl, suspending from his shoulder. Both, the body garments and 'Uttariya' have a rich border and are elegantly embroidered. In the tradition of divine iconography in India, this image of Buddha has a normally tall and slender figure. Hands are taller and elegantly cast. The left one is covered up to the wrist with the 'Uttariya'. The palms of both hands have on them the signs of auspicious lotuses believed to belong to only divine beings. The shoulders are wide and broad and there rise upon them a well defined neck. The recessed belly and broad chest are in conformity to the norms of Indian iconography and further add to the aesthetic beauty of the cast figure.

The image is a fine synthesis of various styles of Buddhist sculptural art that prevailed in India during early centuries of medieval era and in Nepal and Tibet subsequently. The round face has reflection of Sarnath sculptures. However, his narrower and sharp pointed nose, smaller eyes, small recessed lips and the chin coming out a little above them are features of Chinese and Tibetan traditions. Eyes, in meditative posture, are half shut in almost all traditions, but their shape in this image adheres to the tradition of Buddhist iconography prevailing in Himalayan valley. Larger ears and the style of hair, being adherent to textual prescription, are features common to all art traditions and to all times. Garments, surging in fine ripples, are characteristic to Gandhara images of Buddha, the rich embroidery is, however, the character of hills and areas beyond hills.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr. Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of literature and is the author of numerous books on Indian art and culture. Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books.

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.
