Description

A stunning, hand-carved wooden figure of Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. Our Buddhas have been carved in Bali, 

Indonesia using traditional methods of the island and each carver has taken years perfecting his or her skill to able to create work to this standard.

 

 

When depicting Buddha, the positioning of the hands (Mudra) is very important and different mudra represents different things. Here, Buddha is shown in the Vitarka mudra ('the murda of discussion') and this represents the discussion and transmission of Buddhist teachings. The sitting position (Asana) for this Buddha is the full lotus position with each foot resting on the thigh of the other leg with the soles facing upwards. This meditative asana is known as Dhyana Asana or Padmasana.

Buddhism is the story of one man's spiritual journey to Enlightenment, and of the teachings and ways of living that developed from it. Buddha was born as Prince Siddhartha Gautama, and was led from the pain of suffering and rebirth towards the path of Enlightenment to become known as the Buddha or 'awakened one.' Each Buddha is carved by hand and therefore variation is to be expected, they are approximate: 30cm High. 

I personally love this Buddha it adds great intelligence to the room, creating a perfect meditation feel can be placed in a bedroom, bathroom, dining room or hallway.
