Description The peaceful countenance of Lord Buddha exudes peace and harmony.  He is hand carved by the master artist, Baskaran who is known for his stunning Buddha sculptures.  The Buddha has beautiful smiling face and perfect posture and proportion.  He has an urna or third eye on his forehead that symbolizes his ability to see the true nature of the world around us.  His face is handsome with his almond shaped eyes and slight smile spilling his grace on all who view him.  The skin of the Buddha is hand polished giving it a darker shine.  This contrasts beautifully with the gray color of the rough cut stone and gives life and depth to the Buddhas features.  The Buddha is in the dhyana mudra, a hand position of meditation, of concentration on the Good law, and of the attainment of spiritual perfection.  According to tradition, this mudra derives from the one assumed by the Buddha when meditating under the pipal tree before his Enlightenment. This gesture was also adopted since time immemorial, by yogis during their meditation and concentration exercises. It indicates the perfect balance of thought, rest of the senses, and tranquility.
This Buddha statue would be the perfect addition to any Zen or meditation garden bringing enlightened energy into the space.   The Buddha carries with it all the energy of the artists who spent 10 hours a day carving this piece over a period of 9 months. 
 
About Black Granite:  Indian black granite is a wonderful stone. It is capable of a variety of finishes which can give it a variety of different color possibilities. It is possible to see 4-5 different colors on a single piece depending on the degree of polish or roughness of the stone. Indian black granite is among the best granite in the world sought after by artists globally. Unlike inferior quality granite, Indian granite is extremely dense and without impurities that plague other stones. The density of granite makes a granite sculpture perfect for any garden because it can be left outside in extreme heat and extreme cold for years without care.

Care

Granite statues from India do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

"You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically
go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.
"

Soap and warm water is the best way to maintain the statue.  You can use a small brush to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

Granite's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The stone can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture at least once a year so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture.  This will maintain the sculpture for your grandchildren and then their grandchildren!
