Standing Buddha statues are not always directly affiliated with Shakyamuni Buddha, however we can assume that it was done in his likeness. Please observe our standing Buddha statue is depicting the Varada “gift giving” mudra with his right hand. This mudra is depicted with the palm flat and facing away from the body. Additionally, it is a gesture of Buddhist generosity and it expresses the gift of Dharma knowledge that the Buddha gave to sentient beings.
The standing Buddha statue wears the ushnisha topknot, right turning hair coils, neck lines and elongated ears of a Buddha. These markings were also indicative of high ranking social status in ancient India during the time the Buddha walked the earth. Additionally, our statue comes with a removable frame which can be adjusted to suit the preference of the buyer.
