An intricate statue of a standing Buddha by master Mr Tay Gio, hand carved from the rare Burmese - King's Wood (Weeping cypress). Similarly to sandalwood, King's Wood is renowned for it's rich, woody, and masculine scent.
Shakyamuni Buddha is shown standing, in sacred vitarka mudra. This iconic mudra personifies the transmission of the teachings by the Buddha to his sanyasas. It is performed by joining the tips of the thumb and index fingers together while keeping the other fingers straight. The circle which is formed by the thumb and index fingers symbolises the constant flow of energy and information. The Vitarka Mudra is often considered as the mystic gesture of the Bodhisattvas and Taras and is one of the most recognised Mudras in Buddhism.
This sculpture transmits teachings and signifies knowledge without fear. It prompts us be open to new experiences and teachings of life. It symbolises inner growth. Spiritual growth , as we walk the path.
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.
