This unique Buddha Head statue is of perfect size for any kind of indoor or outdoor space. Handmade from sandstone, it can be ideal for outdoor gardens or balconies, where you seek to create a special zen place. With peace and serenity written all over the facial features, this Buddha radiates bliss and harmony all around.

Buddha Heads are known to represent the vast wealth of knowledge Buddha possessed being the awakened one. The artist skill and technique means to depict Buddha in a perfect form and absolute symmetry. A symmetry that defines a balance between Yin and Yang energies (feminine and masculine). The artist views Buddha as a universal symbol of love, harmony and inner peace. Commonly in Asia, Buddha Head sculptures are known to been one of the most popular iconographic representations of Buddha and his characteristics. 


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, maintaining and restoring sculptures of the famous Konark Temple in South India. Then passing on his skills to his son.

R. Mani sources his inspiration from world famous temples of India such as Meenakshi, Khajuraho, and Ellora Cave to name but a few. Influenced by Gupta and Kushan style sculptures, the artist specializes in 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. Some of the leading meditation centres around the world carry his work. R. Mani's intricate Goddess figures are equally revered and he has exhibited his work both in Germany and the USA.

Note: All sculptures being made from natural stone found in mother earth, there might be naturally occurred erosion such as cracks, spots,  or marks.  We believe that adds to the one of kind pieces that we sell here at Mystik River.
