This Buddha posture is one of the common gestures among Buddha statues, having his fingers overlapped on each other and thumb tips joined together in a perfect triangular angle indicating his Dhyana mudra. Buddha is the one who attained bodhi (wisdom) and is responsible for delivering the knowledge of enlightenment to the world. Buddhism is the primordial religion followed by Tibetans, as they believe that it enhances positive energy, good luck and purity in them.
This wooden statue is carved in an exclusive beauty, having Buddha seated in a lotus posture on a charming double lotus pedestal having superfine petals chiselled in an accurate shape and position. The style of his robe is significantly unusual from the iconic Buddha figurines, but the way it is veiled over his body and the manner it is carved in alluring stylized pleats and a thin ethnic border gives a mesmerizing view to the eyes of the viewer. The large closed eyes, pointed nose, that slight curve of lips, long earlobes and coiled hairs aptly justify the sculptor’s professional skills and capabilities.
Buddha’s head is glowed by the cosmic flower aureole that has divine rays of wisdom emerging out from it. One of the most enchanting part of this sculpture is the throne; carved in lustrous floral cuts forming the thick border to a unique shaped floral solid wooden cut.
