This Buddha is an Indian Buddha as the head is rounded and not rising to a point. He is seated on an open lotus flower and also holds one in his hand - the lotus is the symbol of purity. He has one hand raised in a gesture of reassurance, literally meaning have no fear. Around his neck he has prayer beads, the symbol of good fortune. Suspended at the end of the prayer beads is a swastika. This has always been a strong Buddhist symbol; it is the symbol for the wheel of the law and represents unlimited power.
This Buddha weighs 500g approx. 9cm across the base, 5.5cm deep and 14cm high.
