Dharmachakra mudra in Buddhism, as seen in this sculpture in black stone, symbolises an important moment in Buddha’s life; the occasion when he preached to his companions the first sermon after his enlightenment in the Deer Park at Sarnath. In this mudra, the thumb and index finger of both hands touch at their tips to form a circle. This circle represents the Wheel of the principle or law that orders the universe (Dharma in Sanskrit), or the union of method and wisdom. Significantly, in this mudra, the hands are held in front of the heart, symbolising that these teachings are straight from the Buddha's heart. It is one among the most popular mudra’s of Buddha and has universal significance.

Capturing minute details to create a masterpiece so exquisite and beautiful has always been the skill and forte of traditional artisans across India. A fine example of such craftsmanship is this blackstone sculpture of Lord Ganesha who is revered for his wisdom and sense of duty. One tale of his commitment to work goes that Maharishi Veda Vyas requested Lord Ganesha to write the Hindu epic Mahabharata as he recited the story. A condition was laid that Ganesha would not stop writing and would also understand every verse of it. It took them three whole years to complete the scripture. During this process, his tool for writing had worn out and he broke off one of his tusks and continued with it. Such was the commitment of the lord towards his work. An idol of Lord Ganesha is said to ward off all evil. This religious sculpture will do just that for you.
Note: In all its grandeur this can be custom made i.e., handcrafted exclusively for you in a size of your choice to suit your needs.

Aesthetically sculpted in black stone, the face of Lord Buddha is an example of rare craftsmanship. It appropriately depicts the lord in deep meditation, with every expression on his body reflecting positivity and everlasting calmness. It is an exemplar of the manner in which peace of mind can be attained even in tough times; the feeling accentuated by the shade of black in the stone used for the sculpture. It evidences the unique capability of artisans to use contrasting colors in their sculptures to signify a certain trait or feeling, while carving those very expressions to eternal life and inspiring positive perception (Avikalpa in Sanskrit).
