In Mandalay, the ancient Burmese capital, this style of Buddha statue is carved in alabaster. There is a whole neighborhood where the streets and buildings glitter with marble dust and some of the statues being carved are so big that the artists use ladders or scaffolding to reach their faces. We have cast this piece in marble dust bonded with a minimum of resin to come as close as we can to the translucent, transcendent quality of Burmese alabaster.
There is a gentle, calm quality to many Burmese Buddhist images and the feeling this particular Buddha emanates is very comforting. His mudra is called 'Touching the Earth' or 'Calling the Earth to Witness'. He calls to mind Thich Nhat Hanh's phrase, "This moment only moment." Being right here right now is where the fullness of life and liberation resides.
