Antique Bronze Buddha of Enlightenment Serene Down Cast Eyes, 18th Century

About

From a fifty year old UK private collection A large 200 year old bronze Buddha, 18th century, Buddha of Enlightenment This beautiful Buddha sculpture will bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office, sacred, or garden space. The Buddha is seated in virasana, cross legged symbol of serenity, with both hands in the Bhumisparsa or " 'Calling the Earth to Witness' mudra. With fingers slightly touching the ground this position represents the subduing of Mara (a demon) who bombarded Buddha with demons, monsters, violent storms and the three seductive daughters. Remaining steadfast the Buddha testified to his meritorious past by pointing to the earth and calling the Earth Goddess, Thorani. Rising from the ground the Earth Goddess wrings the water from her long black hair. By this action she raises a torrential flood that drowns Mara and his army of demons. This gesture reflects this story symbolizing enlightenment, as well as steadfastness and Buddha’s achievement of perfection or nirvana. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. He has a lotus bud shaped ushnisha protuberance on top of his head that symbolizes a high level of spiritual development. His earlobes are stretched long from youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. Provenance: Ex- private UK Collection. Mudra: Bhumisparsa or Enlightenment Measures: Height 66cm / 26” cast in two parts, lotus base and Buddha. Height includes both sections. Fine original old patina from appropriate age Handmade and hand cast. Excellent garden consideration. Only one.
