Description The Gandhara style Buddha is in the meditation hand position or dhyana mudra.  The Buddha's hair is long and straight on a bun on top of his head which is typical of Gandhara Buddha statues.  He has a beautiful siraschakra or halo behind his head.  A yin-yang symbol is carved into the front of the base.  The dhyana mudra is the mudra 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 is used by yogis during their meditation and concentration exercises. It indicates the perfect balance of thought, rest of the senses, and tranquility.
The color of the marble is very unique with half of the statue being a cream color.  This is very unusual and gives an added dimension of life and power to the sculpture. 
The Buddha is hand carved and completely one of a kind.  When you order this Buddha you will receive this exact sculpture pictured above.

About the Black Marble:  The black marble, called sange-rathek, is found in Jhansi, in the state of Bihar, India.  The stone is known for its wonderful deep black/blue color and the colored purple and yellow veins that flow through the stone.  Looking into a piece of sange-rathek is like staring into deep space and seeing distant galaxies.  It is a very unique and wonderful stone.  Sculpture is very rare to find in this stone because there are seldom pieces of raw stone large enough to accommodate a full-sized sculpture.
Care

"Use a cotton cloth and gently buff the surface of the statue to bring out the natural polish of the stone."

White, red and black marble statues are easy to take care of as they just need some annual upkeep to keep them looking as they did when they were first carved.  Here are some easy tips to keep your White, red and black marble statues from Lotus Sculpture looking like the gods they are:
  • Dust the statue as needed to prevent dirt build up
  • To make the statue shine use a cotton cloth to buff the sculpture
  • You can use a small amount of natural oil such as coconut oil or olive oil to further polish the sculpture
  • Use a tooth brush to get into the hard to reach spaces of the sculpture
  • DO NOT TOUCH the painted surfaces of any of the white marble statues.  This will damage the painting if done often
We recommend keeping our marble statues in an indoor environment.  The statues are durable however not durable enough to brave the natural outdoors.  Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions regarding your wooden statue from Lotus Sculpture, (760) 994-4455 or [email protected]
