Description

This ebony wood 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.

A very dense wood, heavier than water, ebony is a wood that can be highly polished. It is imported from Sulawesi (Celebes) and Kalimantan (Borneo). Only wood from very old trees or the heartwood is black or very dark. Usually it is black with reddish to brown stripes that run parallel to the grain. Sometimes the sapwood is actually white. It is always carved when wet (before it dries out) in order to be malleable for the chisel. Its hardness and straight grain make it ideal for the carver.

This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the artists of Bali, Indonesia.  Every piece is truly unique!
