A remarkable piece entirely from black soft granite by artist V. Sompura. This piece shows Buddha sitting in the lotus posture in Bhumisparsha mudra, also known as earth touching or "earth witness" mudra. This gesture represents the moment of the Buddha's awakening as he claims the earth as the witness of his enlightenment, whilst sitting under the Bodhi Tree.
The granite has been polished except for the Buddha's head and robe. These details have been left with a rough, matte finish, giving the Buddha a distinct appearance. The robe also has a unique pattern on itself. It would be the perfect centrepiece of a living room, home entrance or even outdoors on your balcony.
ABOUT ARTIST - V. Sompura (Gujarat, India)
V. Sompura signature skill and technique lies is in his ability to work with white marble and soft granite. He is often inspired by images of Buddha, but also works around more modern and abstract ideas for his sculptures. His craftsmanship has gained recognition in India and his work has been used across various spiritual retreats. A wonderful example of his abstract marble sculpture is the AUM Ganesh.
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.
