The Reclining Buddha Statue represents the moment the Gautama Budddha reached ParaNirvana, known as the Ultimate Freedom from Samsara (the endless cycle of births). It marks the final chapter in the life of the historical Buddha, who after preaching the Dharma for 45 years, left the world of suffering in Kusinagar in the year 543 BCE.
Please note that this particular sculpture depicts an image of a Swastika on the Buddha's chest, which some people might find offensive. It is important to realize that the Swastika was actually an ancient of good fortune that was used in Buddhist art, and later incorporated in Hindu iconography. It wasn't until much later that the Nazis adopted this benevolent symbol.
Material: This particular statue is made out of bronze resin, which involves making powdered bronze and then mixing it with the resin so as to give the statues a metallic finish that can be painted and molded to fine detail.
Dimensions: 12 Inches Long by 5 Inches Tall by 4 Inches Deep
