Seated Buddha Figurine With Wooden Bodhi Tree Aureole
A miniature sculpture of the Buddha made from pure brass. It depicts Him seated in padmasana, the king of the dhyani (contemplative) yogic stances. An almsbowl in the palm of His left hand, indicative of the years of wandering and mendicancy leading up to His enlightenment. The right hand raised in infinite blessing. The withdrawn composure of a handsome countenance. This chhavi (image) of the Buddha is one of the most calming sights to the devotee. From the princely features of the erstwhile Shakyamuni to the stance of His beauteous body, it exudes a sattvik calm and stillness.
It is said that the wandering monk had sought some rest in the shade of a fig tree in Gaya. Having been irreversibly drawn in by its luxuriant canopy, He attained to Buddhahood shortly thereafter. In the work of art that you see on this page, the little Buddha figurine is set off by a wood-sculpted aureole designed to resemble the canopy of the Indian fig. The delicately curving silhouette of the stem, wide-set roots, and an abundance of leaf and branch that kiss the very roots of the tree. A round, perfectly symmetrical silhouette adds to the aesthetics of the composition.
The different media used to put together this composite work makes for an interesting colour palette. A jet black base that brings out the polished gold colour of the brass, and the deep brown shades of the Bodhi tree aureole with overtones of black.
