Lord Buddha is seated in dhyana mudra,
the mudra of meditation, concentration and of attainment of spiritual
perfection. It is assumed to be the mudra the Buddha adopted when
meditating and reaching enlightenment under the pipal tree.
Also known as samadhi mudra, this gesture has been adopted since time immemorial by yogis during concentration and meditation exercises indicating perfect balance of thought, rest of senses and tranquility.
The third eye in the center of His forehead is a symbol of spiritual awakening of knowledge and wisdom. The third eye in this particular piece is inlaid with a gemstone. He is depicted with a beautiful halo or chakra behind his head. A rare find!
This sculpture was hand carved by the very talented artists of the beautiful country of Cambodia. Every piece is truly unique.
