This statue features a peaceful meditating Buddha in a bright metallic golden finish inspired by the iconic figurines, sculptures and statues found in religious Buddhist temples around the world. This particular pose – characteristic of the Amitabha Buddha, meaning “Boundless Light” -- represents focus and concentration, and depicts the Buddha sitting crossed-legged, with right hand on top of left, palms face up in his lap in Dhyan Mudra (also called Samadhi or Yoga mudra), and with eyes closed in meditation. The triangular shape formed by this silhouette is further believed to represent stability. Its gold colour symbolizes the Sun or fire which, in Buddhist tradition, stands for knowledge, enlightenment, purity, happiness and freedom.
In Buddhist art and tradition, the Amitabha Buddha is the foremost Buddha. He is considered to be the “great saviour” buddha and, as such, he is one of five Cosmic Buddhas in Esoteric Buddhism and is particularly important in Vajrayana and Tibetan Buddhism.
This art piece invites calmness, peacefulness and serenity into your life, ideal for those who seek to improve their own meditation skills or to be inspired by all that this representation of Buddha symbolizes. A modern take on ancient art, t is made of lightweight resin and is the perfect size as an ornament or decor for your altar, desk or table when creating a space in your home or office where you can sit in peace, breathe, find some relaxation, and connect with spirit.
