Contemplating Buddha

Sandstone (Large, 80cm)


The Buddha once said “Patience is key: a jug fills drop by drop”.

This sculpture presents Buddha in moment of contemplation, while laying against a water jug. In Buddhism, a water jug often symbolises the process of purification and spiritual cleansing as one pursuits the path to enlightenment. The sculpture of contemplation Buddha reminds us to remain patient and mindful. To ponder a subject deeply before jumping to any conclusions.

Contemplation or reflection is a key practice given by Buddha to his followers. The practise enables us to grow our awareness and mindfulness in daily life. In particular, Buddha was prompted to reflect and contemplate on five facts of human reality. It is said that a deep contemplation on these facts would help awaken our minds and spirit from its state of sleep. It is of essential importance to achieving the state of Nirvana - enlightenment.

This sculpture would beautifully compliment your outdoor space. Be it your swimming pool, garden or simply your balcony -Contemplating Buddha will bring  a sense of serenity and peace.
