Standing Buddha

Indian Sandstone (Medium Statue, 33cm)


Artists in India believe that through sculpture the artist reveals the eternal hidden within stones and mountains. Creating statues of sacred deities, Gods and Goddesses as well as Buddha, the artists manifest the form of divine in nature.  

Inspired by ancient images of Buddha found in world famous caves of Ella and Ajanta found in Maharashtra, R. Mani recreated this image of Shakyamuni Buddha carved entirely within Sandstone, as if taken from the cave. Influenced by native Indian style, the artist left the back of the stone untouched, preserving the rough finish, as found in Mother Nature. Looking at this masterpiece we are taken back into ancient times, marvelling at the glory of Indian artistic heritage. Indeed, it is R. Mani's tribute to the ancient treasures of Indian art and architecture.

This statue is an original & one of a kind masterpiece by artist R. Mani

About Artist - R. Mani

R. Mani born in 1965 , is originally from Mahabalipuram located in Tamil Nadu state, South India. Mani was brought up surrounded by art. His father, Dhruva Pratap was a well-known sculptor and maintained and restored the sculptures of the famous Konark Temple in South India, passing on his skills to his son.

R. Mani sources his inspiration from world famous temples of India such as Meenakshi, Khajuraho, Ellora Cave to name but a few. Influenced by Gupta and Kushan style sculptures, the artist specializes on traditional Indian Gods and Goddesses. He works with traditional Indian materials such as Sandstone, Granite and Marble

Holder of two awards from the President of India, he is especially well known for his Buddha sculptures. He imbues his Buddha faces with such serenity and a sense of blissfulness that it’s no surprise they are used by so many to assist in deep meditation in some of the leading meditation centres around the world. His intricate Goddess figures are equally revered and he has exhibited his work both in Germany and the USA.
