This exquisite bust of the Buddha captures him in a particularly humanized form. Depictions of Buddha often show him as an idealized ascetic with lean, almost harsh features. Here we see a more approachable side. His cheeks and gently cleft chin appear soft. His serene is expression is calm but not other-wordly. Some classic features of Buddha depictions remain. Buddha’s eyes are slightly enlarged, a sign of his great vision and wisdom, and he seems to be in meditation. The elaborate crown he wears is unusual as Buddhist depictions normally show him as either bald or with curling hair. Perhaps this statue is meant to capture his likeness in the time before he left his noble upbringing, when he was still contemplating his decision to become a wanderer in search of enlightenment. Or perhaps the crown simply signifies his regal position within the Buddhist faith and belief system. Either way the statue is a wonderful tribute to the human side of this heroic and sometimes idealized figure. The detail of the crown is striking and makes a truly regal image. Sized to fit most home or office spaces and priced to fit most budgets, this wonderful can add a touch of peace and focus where ever it may be needed.
