Thank you so much for the info friend
I actually wasn't that interested in the various mudras
until you posted that link. Now I find it fascinating to know what each one means.
That website is great! I did some digging, and I think I found one of the statues that they ripped the design for my Buddha rupa
from. I know, never end a sentence with a preposition...

As you said, it's the Abhaya Mudra, or gesture of reassurance (or Calming the Oceans). Apparently the Buddha is in "Royal Attire". Who knew?
Kind of makes it sound like an action figure..."Lord Buddha 18" Fully Pose-able! Comes With Royal Attire Ready to Do Battle With Mara! Collect 'Em All!"
