Buddhist art and sculpture

The religion of Buddhism began in India in the 5th century BC and over the centuries has spread throughout Asia to become the dominant religion in countries including Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Tibet. Thanks to the popularity of the Buddhist religion, statues of Buddha are instantly recognisable.

However, buddha statues come in a huge range of shapes and sizes, with the figure of buddha in standing or sitting poses. From hand carved wooden buddha statues and stone buddha heads, through to buddha bronzes, a diverse selection of these beautiful objects are widely available.

You might have noticed that buddha statues depict buddha standing in different poses. Each pose has its own significance which dictates where that particular figure should be placed in the home.

Statues which depict buddha as seated with one hand raised in blessing, for example, signifies protection which means that this type of statue could be particularly beneficial when placed opposite the front door. If you’d like buddha to bring you inner peace then a statue in the meditation pose can be placed in any quiet corner, whilst a buddha with hands folded in prayer must always sit above eye level as looking down on him is disrespectful.

Buddha statues make the perfect gift

There are many reasons to buy a buddha, not least in terms of their charming appearance. Buddha statues are often bought as an aid to meditation as it’s believed that focusing on the face of the statue will provide a source of calm and inspiration, helping the meditator to achieve enlightenment.
