A superb, sustainable padmasana. The body balanced upon the knees-and-hip trifecta, heels touching each other directly below the navel. Upon those heels the left hand, in the dharmachakra mudra; the dharmachakra mudra of the right hand, which He holds up frontal to the torso. The Buddha is clad in an unstitched brown robe, its silken folds gathered over His long, gracious limbs in lifelike manner. Having attained enlightenment, He delivers a sermon at Bodh Gaya to the finest teachers of the time in proof of the same.
His composure of countenance is of cosmic self-sufficiency and seedless samadhi (yogic contemplation). The long earlobes of wisdom, half-shut eyes set against a handsome brow. Those characteristic curls of hair and the befitting glamour of the lotus pedestal. This seated Buddha has been sculpted with equal parts skill and equal parts shraddha.
Seated atop a vast lotus-form as elegant as His own form, Lord Buddha is depicted in this unusual brass sculpture in the vitarka mudra that stands for dialogue and/or preaching (the circle formed by the thumb and the index finger symbolizes the cyclical flow of energy and information). Pick this one for a graceful addition to your space.
