The Baby Buddha has a significant meaning in the Buddhas life cycle and faith, in the Buddhas teachings he talks about ending the cycle of suffering and no longer being reincarnated, but sometimes a very special human can die and come back as another human, often when they are close to reaching nirvana but didn't get there in that specific life time. The baby Buddha represents that stage of the cycle.

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.

PS: With all hand made stone and wood sculptures, there might be some natural erosion with cracks and spots, but that adds to the one of kind pieces that we sell here at Mystik River.
