  • Antique Chinese Style Seated Dharmachakra Teaching Buddha Statue - 30cm/12"

    Measures (Height) 30cm/12"

    An antique Chinese style seated Teaching Buddha statue.

    The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. The bodies profile is with broad shoulders and waist, covered by an ornate Sanghati robe worn over both shoulders. 

    The Buddha features a round face, with almond shaped downcast eyes. Curved eyebrows meet above a prominent aquiline nose, and contoured lips with an exalted expression, appear smiling. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings.

    The head is surmounted by a hemispherical ushnisha, topped by a lotus bud shaped ornamental finial, symbolizing his high level of spiritual development.

    The lotus flower represents the attaining of enlightenment and the ultimate fulfilment that follows. This symbol is heavily used in Eastern religions, which is why it can appear as both a held item or a seat. Some say that as the lotus flower grows in dirty water but becomes something beautiful, it demonstrates how we must forget our attachments to the material world around us and focus on our inner spirituality in order to seek happiness.

    The Buddha is seated in the half lotus position with his hand raised in front of his chest in the dharmachakra mudra. In sanskrit dharmachakra means the 'Wheel of Dharma'. This mudra symbolises one of the most important moments in the life of Buddha, the occasion when he preached to his companions the first sermon after his Enlightenment in the Deer Park at Sarnath. It therefore denotes the setting into motion of the Wheel of the teaching of the Dharma. In this mudra the thumb and index finger of both hands touch at their tips to form a circle. This circle represents the Wheel of Dharma, or in metaphysical terms, the union of method and wisdom.

    The bronze surface demonstrates a beautiful green malachite surface.

    One of the most recognizable of the Asian deities this representation of the spiritual teacher Buddha is sure to enlighten your home with endlessly timeless style.

Thanks for our Buddha. He is lovely and has pride of place in the kitchen living area in front of the fire. He looks happy and serene there.
