Hand carved Ametrine Buddha



Hand carved Ametrine Buddha


Buddha statues across Asia are representative of the teachings and travels of Gautama Buddha. Each statue features common physical attributes, poses, and postures that define its purpose and meaning.

The hand gestures of the Buddha, called mudras, indicate teaching, meditation, enlightenment, and wisdom. Similarly, the postures of the Buddha each have a specific meaning. Buddha is most often represented in three positions: sitting, standing, or reclining. Though less common, there are a few representations walking Buddha, as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • The four postures of the Buddha are reclining, sitting, standing, and walking. The most common of these is the seated Buddha.
  • The reclining Buddha is in the final stage of earthly life, before reaching nirvana-after-death.
  • The sitting Buddha is often teaching or meditating, though more can be learned from the mudras, or hand positions.
  • The standing Buddha is rising to teach after reaching nirvana.
  • The walking Buddha is either beginning his journey toward enlightenment or returning from teaching a sermon.
