The beauty of any statue is defined by its smooth texture, sharp curves and accurate structure. The one shown here aptly fulfils all these criterias with an additional feature of being inlayed with multicolored reconstituted stones of varied shapes and sizes to highlight Buddha’s iconography in a more precise and beautified manner. Buddha in his padmasana sits calmly on a double lotus throne carved elegantly and the petals are decorated in red and blue stones in a precise manner.
The most eye-catchy aspect of this sculpture is the floral fashioned robe that veils his body in an utmost elegance and decency; having a thin beaded border and a fill of red flowers on a blue background along with the entire field area decorated with blue and white flowers, placed soberly at equal distances and connected with vines of beads on a divine red carpet as the background.
Gautama’s left hand rests on his lap and right is held high in Abhaya Mudra with the sacred diamond symbol chiselled on it, preaching disciples of the path to enlightenment. The three lines on his neck are similar to that on a conch identifying his soulful voice; sharp pointed nose, slight relaxing curve of the lips, gently curvature of eyes, a wavy dot on forehead representing his third eye of wisdom, long earlobes and the short coiled hair which are designed in a unique manner in blue complementing the color of his robe, accentuate his persona in a decent fashion.
