An extremely rare Buddha head statue hand carved from an entire piece of aquamarine crystal by artist Ram Kumar. This piece is as much as 15.5 cm height and 1.7 gm weight. An aquamarine crystal of this size comes up only once in three years, making this piece priceless. It is said that contemplating on a Buddha statue, helps to awaken the divine energy within us.
A Buddha statue can be recognised by some key attributes, that mark it as the depiction of the Enlightened One. Among these attributes are the elongated ear lobes that are symbolic of longetivity. They represent Buddha's ability to listen to his followers, and mark Buddha's past as a prince before he took the path of renunciation of worldly pleasures to pursue his spiritual journey to Enlightenment. Another attribute is the ūrṇā , the circular dot on Buddha's forehead that is symbolic of wisdom.
