Black Soft Granite
One of a kind art pieces by V. Sompura entirely handmade from soft granite stone. This sculpture depicts the Sleeping Buddha, also called Nirvana Buddha.Sleeping Buddha is an iconic representation of Gautam Buddha in a resting posture before entering into Nirvana (also referred to as Parinirvana). Despite the pain his body might be going through as he is witnessing his last breaths, the artist captures Buddha in his elegance. Buddha remains calm and gracious. The reclining Buddha should be taken as an object of encouragement that all beings have the potential to be awakened or enlightened, thus releasing themselves from the suffering which is characterized by samsara (cycle of rebirths).
Artist - V. Sompura (Gujarat, India)
V. Sompura signature style lies in his ability to work with white marble and black soft granite. He is often inspired by images of Buddha, but also works around more modern and abstract ideas for his sculptures.
