Description
Perhaps nowhere in the world are daily life and religion more intimately intertwined than in India. For thousands of years, Indian artists have created sculptures that celebrate the spirit. In Buddhist belief, a Bodhisattva is one who, through virtue and meditation, is thought to be a future Buddha, or savior of the world. The word itself translates loosely as "the essence of knowledge". This sensitive sculpture in an archaic style shows a holy person meditating on a lotus throne. Serene and elegant, it lifts the mind to a higher plane. - (PF.1380)
