About The Artwork

R. Mani’s standing Buddha in the sacred Vitarka Mudra (teaching gesture). 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. Buddha gesture Vitarka mudra personifies the transmission of the teachings by the Buddha to his sanyasas (students). It 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. Creating this piece, the artist was inspired by Gandhara period, Buddhist art developed during Kushan dynasty. It was strongly influenced by Hellenic style and is famous for use of ancient Greek techniques. Looking at Buddha’s face, his youthful look and features resembles closely those of Greek and Roman Gods. The details of his robe is another characteristic common to Gandhara art. Artist - R. Mani ( Chenai, India) R. Mani born in 1965 , is originally from Mahabalipuramlocated in Tamil Nadu state, South India. Influenced by Gupta and Kushan art periods, the artist specialises on traditional Indian Gods and Godesses. His inspiration is often sourced from world famous historic temples like Khajuraho and Meenakshi. R. Mani uses traditional Indian materials such as Sandstone, Granite and Soft stone. Mani was brought up surrounded by art. His father, Dhruva Pratap was a well-known sculptor and maintained and restored the sculptures of the famous Konark Temple in South India, passing on his skills to his son. 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 in some of the leading meditation centres around the world. PS: 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.
