One of V. Sompura’s finest work - standing Buddha in the sacred Vitarka Mudra. This Vitarka Mudra personifies the transmission of the teachings by the Buddha to his sanyasas. This particular Mudra is performed by joining the tips of the thumb and index fingers together while keeping the other fingers straight. The circle which is formed by the thumb and index fingers symbolises the constant flow of energy and information. The Vitarka Mudra is often considered as the mystic gesture of the Bodhisattvas and Taras and is one of the most recognised Mudras in Buddhism. For this special piece, the artist is using is black soft granite, which is well known for its aesthetic quality and value.
This sculpture transmits teachings and signifies knowledge without fear. It prompts us be open to new experiences and teachings of life. It symbolises inner spiritual growth , as we walk the path.
The ideal placement within the home could be a comfortable place of study, work or contemplation. This piece is complementary to a quiet space in your garden and can sit alongside the plants in your home. This magnificent piece by Sompura helps to guide the path forward and supports you to connect with your inner wisdom.
ABOUT THE 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
