Our Nepali master artisan created this beautiful multicolored Shakyamuni Buddha statue with a crown and jewels. At the request of the buyer, we would be happy to adorn the crown and jewels of this statue with turquoise and red stones. The color turquoise is a special combination of blue and green. Indeed, blue signifies the purity of the Buddha and green symbolizes their readiness to act.
Unique Shakyamuni Buddha Statue Features
This unique portrayal of a Shakyamuni Buddha statue illuminates him in bright colors with 24k gold gilding. Additionally, Shakyamuni Buddha is depicting the Bhumisparsha “earth touching” mudra. As he was on the verge of enlightenment under the Bodhi tree, the Buddha, used this mudra to call the Earth Goddess to witness his vanquishment of the demon Mara. It was the most important moment in the development of Buddhism in our era. This is because he had permanently vanquished the defilements and become the first enlightened being of our time.
The second mudra depicted by our Shakyamuni Buddha statue is the Dhyana “meditation” mudra. Additionally, he is holding the alms bowl in the palm of the hand. This is a very important symbol because the bowl contains the three nectars of wisdom, compassion and generosity. As a result, the three poisons of greed, hatred and ignorance are eliminated. Additional symbols included with the statue are the ushnisha topknot, three neck lines and the third eye of wisdom. Click here to learn more about the historical Buddha.
