Fine Antique Teaching Buddha with Divine Halo Hand Cast Bronze, 19th Century
From a forty year old private United Kingdom collection A Lovely Buddha seated in the padmasana or full lotus position, with his hands raised in front of his chest in the dharmachakra mudra- teaching or preaching the"Wheel of dharma". This mudra symbolises one of the most important moments in the life of Buddha, the occasion when he preached his first sermon to his companions after his enlightenment in Deer Park at Sarnath. This denotes the teaching initiative known as the Wheel of Dharma. In this mudra the thumb and index finger touch at their tip to form a circle. This circle represents the Wheel of Dharma ie method and wisdom. The halo overhead suggests his divinity- it is separable. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes. He has a large ushnisha protuberance on top symbolizing his high level of spiritual development. His earlobes are stretched from a youth as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. This beautiful Buddha sculpture will bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office, sacred space, or garden. Provenance: Ex- private UK collection. Mudra: Dharmachakra or Teaching Measures: Height 56cm / 22” Fine original old patina from appropriate age. Handmade and hand cast. Excellent garden consideration.
