This sitting meditating Sakyamuni Buddha is holding the fearless mudra, known as Abhaya Mudra (Gesture of protection). The stone plate serves as a backdrop, featuring carved flames and a dragon head. The use of flames as ritual objects is seen as weapon of war and as an important component of offerings. It is often carried by Shiva. Dragon is the symbol of power and strength and is thought to offer protection. The intricate carving of the Buddha’s rope is evident in this meticulously carved early to mid 20 century marble stone statue. 12” x 4.5” x 28”. Weight: 70 lbs.
