This carved stone figure depicts the historical Buddha, known also as Shaka, Shakyamuni, or Siddhartha Gautama. Seated in meditation with legs crossed in diamond position, the Buddha embodies virtues of wisdom and composure. His right hand is held up in prana mudra, a gesture to awaken the vital life force dormant within. His left hand is held towards the ground in bhumisparsha mudra, to call the earth as witness to his enlightenment. Traces of gold leaf and red and green pigments indicate that the stone figure was originally lavished with vibrant color. With elegant detail and rich surface texture, this seated Buddha brings beauty and serenity to all its surroundings.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
