Owning a statue of the Buddha is a positive experience for anybody who wishes to cultivate a space of mindfulness in their home.
Ganesha, the Hindu god who is said to help worshippers overcome obstacles and kickstart new beginnings, is most recognisable by his elephant head.
However, Ganesh is also the ultimate multi-tasker, carrying multiple – and naturally symbolic – items in his many hands. Here we look into the meanings of these items.
Need the Buddha’s benevolent serenity now but sticking to an inflexible budget? Want Ganesha’s assistance in removing obstacles now but juggling financial priorities? We are pleased to announce that we are now taking Klarna payments at HD Asian Art.
The poses and mudra (hand positions) of the Buddha are spiritually charged, with each stance and style carefully curated in order to communicate a specific state of the teacher.
Here we delve into the meanings behind these positions, so that you can carefully consider which type of statue specifically resonates with you.
