  • Buddha Statue - Antique Indonesian Style Seated Bronze Javanese Teaching Buddha - 28cm/11"

    Measures (Height) 28cm/11"

    An Indonesian (Java) teaching Buddha, sat panhandle, in 13th century Majapahit style. The Buddha is seated on a large lotus flower base with his right foot resting on a separate lotus flower. 

    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.
    Buddha's robe is draped over his left shoulder, 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 simple aureole or halo, with finial, sits behind the head of the Buddha. This circle of light symbolises his divinity.

    He holds his hands 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 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. This symbolises generosity. The detail and patina of the piece are delightful.

    A delightful Buddha with a rich, dark patina.

I received the Buddha early afternoon on Friday. It is much prettier than I could have ever expected. The pictures do not show the beauty of this piece. It is amazing. You are amazing as well for sending it to me so fast and so well packaged. Thank you so much. I feel so lucky to have this piece and thank you so much for making that happen.
