Antique Indonesian Style Javanese Teaching Buddha – 49cm/20″
Measures – (Height) 49cm/20”
An Indonesian (Java) Teaching Buddha in 13th century Majapahit style.
The Buddha is stood samabhanga on a round lotus petal base which itself rests on a square pedestal. His robe is draped over his left shoulder and a portion of the garment that covers the left wrist falls behind the figure. The lower hem of the robe comes all the way down so that the under-cloth or skirt is completely covered.
He has a third eye or urna on his forehead symbolizing the ability of Buddha to see past our mundane universe of suffering.
He holds his hands in the wish-fulfilling mudra: his left hand facing down and the palm outward and his right in the Teaching mudra. His right hand raised in the dharmachakra mudra. In sanskrit dharmachakra means the ‘Wheel of Dharma’. This mudra symbolises one of the most important moments in the life of Buddha, the occasion when he preached to his companions the first sermon after his Enlightenment in the Deer Park at Sarnath. It therefore denotes the setting into motion of the Wheel of the teaching of the Dharma. In this mudra the thumb and index finger touch at their tips to form a circle. This circle represents the Wheel of Dharma, or in metaphysical terms, the union of method and wisdom. This symbolises generosity.
