Buddha Sculpture - Antique Thai Style Bronze Seated Meditation Winter Buddha Statue - 12.5cm/5"
Measures (Height) 12.5cm/5"
Antique Thai style bronze winter Buddha statue. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow.
The bodies profile is with broad shoulders and slender waist, covered by a Sanghati robe that depicts the winter Buddha.
The Buddha features an oval shaped face, with almond shaped downcast eyes. Curved eyebrows meet above a prominent nose, and contoured lips with an exalted expression, appear smiling. The shell like curls of the hair form are surmounted by a flaming ushnisha, symbolising his high level of spiritual development. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings.
The Buddha is seated on a decorated lotus leaf pedestal in the Dhyana mudra or 'Meditation Position'. This hand gesture promotes the energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy.
The lotus flower that Buddha is seated upon 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 sculpture provides the perfect traditional in appearance Buddha to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.
