Buddha In Meditation

The Buddha is seated in the attitude of meditation. There is a prominent urnaon his forehead and a large nimbus behind. The raised hairline is prominent and the wavy hair is swept back over theushnisha. The loose garment covers both his shoulders. The pedestal contains the scene of the worship of the bowl. The image in every respect is a typical example of the Gandharan idiom.

Siddhartha, better known as Gautama, the Buddha, was also called Sakyasimha, the Lion of the Sakyas’ and Sakyamuni, ‘the Sage of the Sakyas’ as he was born in the Kshatriya clan of the Sakyas, of which his father Suddhodana was the chief.
