Antique Indonesian Style Javanese Standing Ratnasambhava Buddha - 14cm/6"
Measures - (Height) 14cm/6"
An Indonesian (Java) Ratnasambhava Buddha in 13th century Majapahit style surrounded by four acolytes.
This lovely Buddha is stood samabhanga on a tiered square pedestal surrounded by four acolytes in adoration pose with their hands clasped together. His robe is draped to leave the right shoulder bare, and a portion of the garment that covers the left wrist falls behind the figure. The lower hem of the robe comes all the way down so that the under-cloth or skirt is completely covered. A halo sits behind the head of the Buddha. This circle of light symbolises his divinity.
The Buddha's right hand faces down. His left holds the hem of his robes.
He also has a third eye or urna on his forehead symbolizing the ability of Buddha to see past our mundane universe of suffering. His eyes are downcasts as he extends grace to his devotees.
Ratnasambhava Buddha represents richness. His name translates to "Origin of the Jewel" or the "Jewel-Born One." In Buddhism, the Three Jewels are the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha and Ratnasambhava is often thought of as the giving Buddha.
He reigns in the South and is associated with the second skandha, sensation. Meditation on Ratnasambhava Buddha vanquishes pride and greed, focusing instead on equality.
