Buddha Relief Plate

The serene smile of the Buddha is his most distinguishing feature. Along with this, his graceful hands, displayed in a variety of gestures. Each of these gestures is called a mudra . In Sanskrit, the word mudra (literally, seal or mark of identity) is a form of non-verbal communication that refers to symbolic gestures imbued with varied spiritual meanings. In Buddhist iconography, mudras invoke specific aspects of Buddhas (for example, as teacher, protector). They are extensively used during prayer rituals and mantra recitations. It is believed that mudras enable the practitioner to experience a connection with the Buddha being invoked. The 5 Buddha resin plate depicts Buddha in Bhumisparsha, Varada, Dharamchakra, Dhyana and Abhaya Mudra (from left to right). The Buddha plate measures 11.5 inches wide and 4 inches tall. Hand-finished, minor variations and imperfections add to the artistic character of each piece.
