Here we see a statue that focuses entirely on the mental and spiritual aspects of the Buddha. His hair curls over his head, indicating that he no longer styles it as he would have when he lived among the nobility. Perched amid his curling hair is a topknot. Explanations for the topknot vary, but a common one is that it a sign of his heightened mental powers, an indication that his mind has grown beyond the norm. Buddha’s stretched earlobes are a reminder of the heavy jewelry he once wore. That jewelry is absent now, having been shed along the path to enlightenment. The sublime expression Buddha wears is the picture of meditation and relaxation. He is absolutely focused, but he appears to softly smile. Buddha’s quest for enlightenment does not make him harsh or severe. Instead it makes him gentle and happy. The detail work on Buddha’s face contrasts nicely with the more abstract imagery of his ears and hair. It is another reminder to focus on important things and let those things which do not matter slide. This statue is a lovely addition to any eastern themed room and is guaranteed to add a touch a touch of tranquility to any home or office.
