A brass Buddha. Most likely meade in Thailand late 20th century. Its a modern Buddha. This is the bhumisparsha Buddha. The bhumisparsha Buddha is always depicted in a seated position, with the right hand resting on the knee and fingers pointing towards the earth. The left hand rests on the lap with the palm facing upwards. ‘Bhumisparsha’ means ‘touching the earth’ or ‘calling the earth to witness’. This mudra ( buddhist hand gesture ) represents the moment when Buddha became enlightened underneath the Bodhi tree. Its a big one and quite decorative.
