A soulful piece for the spiritual man in your life. This amazing bronze Buddha amulet has a wonderful patina and is imported from Bangkok, Thailand. The most important aspect of the iconography of the Buddha is gestures made with the hands, known as mudrā. These gestures have meanings which are known throughout the Buddhist world. Here we see the Meditating Buddha, with his hands in the dhyāna mudrā position. This mudrā is associated with a seated Buddha. It shows that the Buddha is disciplining his mind through mental concentration, a necessary step to achieving enlightenment.
The amulet is 1.5 inches long and has carved writing in Thai on the back.
I've strung this pendant on rich rustic, brown leather featuring a slip knot clasp to make this quite adjustable in length. I've added a silver bead for a little extra touch.
