Siddhartha Gautama, popularly known as Gautam Budh or Budha itself, was an ascetic, a religious leader, and a teacher of 6th century BC India. He is the founder of Buddhism. He was born in a wealthy household in present day Nepal but, moved by the sufferings of the world, he executed great renunciation. In this sculpture, Budha is seen meditating in a Pranayama pose with his left hand in Dhyaan Mudra, also known as yoga mudra and his right hand in Vitarka mudra, which signifies the discussion and transmission of Budha’s teachings. In his left hand, we can also see a beggar’s pot which implies that he was a monk.

This sculpture is intricately and carefully carved which delineates plenty of his characteristics. There are 3 lines on his neck symbolising vital disciplines – conduct, concentration, and wisdom. Furthermore, his right shoulder is bare because usually, monks merely had a single fabric to wrap around their body and if right handed, the monk would cover his left shoulder and keep the right bare, as in the case of Budha, where he is wearing a black fabric with a golden lining on his left shoulder. He is also seen sitting on a pedestal carved with lotus petals and his earlobes are also outreached to make a lotus petal, this flower’s significance is that it symbolises the one who overcame the pain prevailing in the material world and became enlightened. Budha’s hair is engraved in such a manner that they appear like snails and there is a cone like crest on his head. He is meditating on a meticulously carved Bodh gaya, on which Budha renounced his princely life to wander and practice asceticism. His eyes and the body language reveal how he is ruminating in a tranquil and composed manner.
