This beautiful Buddha carving was hand-carved by a talented Indonesian artisan.
The hand gesture or mudra holds a special meaning. This Mudra is called the Bhumpisparsa Mudra and is always depicted with the right hand while the left hand is on the lap with the palm facing outwards. The translation means 'Touching the Earth', or 'Calling the Earth to Witness the Truth'.
It is said to be Buddha's hand gesture when he achieved enlightenment. It represents unshaken strength and the truth of his commitment to liberation, which helped overcome the darkness challenging him right before he entered the Light.
The natural wood inclusions may vary as depicted by the photos below.
