Antique Indonesian Style Seated Bronze Javanese Protection Buddha Statue - 16cm/6"
Measures (Height) 16cm/6"
An Indonesian (Java) Amoghasiddhi Buddha in 13th century Majapahit style.
The perfect Buddha for those looking for infallible success or the vanquishing of jealously and envy. This beautiful Buddha is seated on a double lotus leaf pedestal. His robe is draped over his left shoulder and cascades in classical waves to the floor. The lower hem of the robe comes all the way down so that the under-cloth or skirt is completely covered.
The Buddha's hand faces outwards in the abhaya mudra. The Abhaya mudra "gesture of fearlessness" is a mudra (gesture) that offers protection, reassurance and safety. Dispelling fear and according divine protection and bliss in many Indian religions. His hands are held upright, with the palms facing outwards.
This is one of the earliest mudras found depicted on a number of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain images.
He also has a third eye or urna on his forehead symbolizing the ability of Buddha to see past our mundane universe of suffering. The Amoghasiddhi Buddha represents the accomplishment of all action.
His name means 'Infalliable Success". Meditation on Amoghasiddhi Buddha vanquishes envy and jealousy, two often impulsive actions. Amoghasiddhi is one of the Five Wisdom Buddhas of the Vajrayana tradition of Buddhism. He is associated with the accomplishment of the Buddhist path and of the destruction of the poison of envy.

It is an amazing "museum quality" antique bronze!!! For a 19th century bronze antique, I believe the Newark, NJ Museum may express interest if I show them. However, they will never get it and I will have it in my collection for posterity. We will be doing much more business in the foreseeable future, count on it!!!

Thank you so very much! Well, I needed Buddha here -- and I certainly now have Buddha here in many ways and many forms -- with thanks to HDAsianArt. Each statue you've sent has worked out very well -- each in its own way -- each combined in settings with other art pieces -- each has blended well -- finishing off different areas of my home -- and all communicates well to tell a story of different aspects of my life. I intentionally chose your pieces -- to get away from the "norm" of beautiful gild Buddhas that everyone has -- your pieces are quite unique -- and a bit more "real" -- which serves my purpose well. So, thank you.
