Lord Buddha’s hands are in the dharmachakra mudra. This is the gesture of teaching. Dharma means ‘law’ and chakra means ‘wheel’ and is usually interpreted as turning the Wheel of Law. This was the hand gesture exhibited by Lord Buddha while preaching his first sermon in Sarnath.
This sculpture is entirely hand carved and hand painted in Bali, Indonesia. Every piece is truly unique!
