Shakyamuni Buddha Bhumisparsha Mudra Fully Gold Plated Statue
This is a copper statue of Shakyamuni Buddha. The statue is fully gold plated. The statue has been hand carved with detailed floral motifs. The meticulous carving on the statue is the main highlight of this statue. The gold face painting is done so beautifully that the face of Buddha is glowing.
Shakyamuni Buddha was born in Kapilvastu, Lumbini, Nepal some 2600 Years ago and performed many Buddha activities for 45 years in this sub-continent for the benefit of all the sentient beings. And this statue coming from his birthplace makes this statue a special one.
Here, Shakyamuni Budhha is in Bhumisparsha Mudra where the left hand rests in the lap with the palm facing upward. The right hand rests palm down on the right knee with the fingers pointing toward the earth. When the Buddha attained enlightenment, he reportedly used this gesture to summon the earth to bear witness to his victory over the seductive forces of illusion.
