Info on Buddha image

Postby stlredbird » Thu May 30, 2013 3:00 pm

Good morning. I'm hoping someone has some info on a statue/sculpture of the Buddha I see often on various websites. Though I see this image often, and have done several searches for it, I can never find any actual info of the statue itself.

Any info on this? Where it is located? Artist?

Thanks!

Just curious why the dhyana mudra of this statue is opposite to the usual right hand over the left? Also the legs in half lotus seems opposite too.

Thanks so much for the info! I had never noticed the left hand in right hand placement as opposed to the normal right in left placement.

I really wish there was a replica of this statue that you could purchase somewhere. For whatever reason I find myself relating to this image of the Buddha more than any other.

Has the image been reflected?

I guess it's possible, i cant find other pictures of the exact same Buddha statue.
Here is another very similar statue that also have the opposite placement of the hands.
