One of a kind art pieces by V. Sompura entirely handmade from soft granite stone. This sculpture depicts the Sleeping Buddha, also called Nirvana Buddha.Sleeping Buddha is an iconic representation of Gautam Buddha in a resting posture before entering into Nirvana (also referred to as Parinirvana). Despite the pain his body might be going through as he is witnessing his last breaths, the artist captures Buddha in his elegance. Buddha remains calm and gracious. The reclining Buddha should be taken as an object of encouragement that all beings have the potential to be awakened or enlightened, thus releasing themselves from the suffering which is characterized by samsara (cycle of rebirths).
ABOUT ARTIST - V. Sompura
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.
Note: 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.
