With this sculpture R. Mani has created a simple reminder of a simple gesture using his famed sandstone sculpting technique that he is highly recognised for. This 2.5 foot abstract piece depicts the ’Namaskar’ mudra, which like all mudras is deeply rooted in the science of Yoga. It is a common greeting in Indian and various Southeast Asian cultures and is derived from the Sanskrit language as a gesture of obeisance, recognising the source of creation in all life. By including this piece in your own home, it can serve as a daily reminder of the source of creation within you.
