Details

Meditating, Buddha sits in the lotus pose with his hands in the bhumisparsa mudra. This mudra or hand gesture represents the moment when Buddha achieved enlightenment. As the story goes, Buddha was sitting in meditation with his left hand resting palm up in his lap, and his right hand touching the earth. Buddha was challenged by a demon, who asked him for a witness that would attest to his right to achieve enlightenment. To reply he touched the ground, asking Pthivi (the devi of the earth) that she witness his enlightenment. Adi Noviantara of Bali creates this beautiful statuette from bronze, with a slightly antiqued finish.

"Very Nice"

This is my second purchase from this artist. I love both pieces. The statuette is beautifully made - looks just like in the picture - and I love the meaning behind the earth witness pose. It makes me happy every time I look at it.

"Looks like an antique"

I love Buddha sculptures and I thought this one looks like an antique or family heirloom. The craftsmanship is detailed and beautiful, and I love the finish. Its heavy! I keep it on my living room coffee table and it reminds me to spend quiet moments in gratitude every day.
