The face of the lord in this sculpture radiates peace and fulfillment. The features are so well defined; these accentuate a feel of reality. The Lord is seen engrossed in the Jnana mudra. Jnana Mudra or Gyan Mudra is one of the most common yogic mudra used in meditation. In Sanskrit, the word "Jnana" means knowledge or wisdom and "mudra" means sign or gesture. It literally means the psychic gesture of knowledge or wisdom. In Jnana mudra, the thumb represents the Supreme Reality called Brahman. The forefinger represents the individual soul or the Jiva or our inner reality. The two fingers touching each other signify the oneness of Brahman and Jiva. In other words the Individual self is not different from the Supreme reality Brahman. The three other fingers represent the three Gunas of Nature. The middle finger represents Sattva Guna (Light, Purity, Clarity of mind, understanding, etc.). The ring finger represents Rajas (action, passion, movement, etc.). The little finger represents Tamas (inertia, dullness, inaction, confusion, etc.). These three Gunas have to be transcended to reach the ultimate reality. That is the philosophical symbolism behind this gesture.

Known as the destroyer of Mahishasura, the Goddess Durga occupies a special place in the Hindu pantheon of Gods. Known as the mother of the universe and revered as the spiritual power behind the work of creation, preservation and destruction of the world, Durga, through all her forms, has come to encompass the essence of salvation and sacrifice. She is worshipped as the mother of bounty and wealth, the mother of beauty and knowledge as well as the embodiment of purity, truth and self-realization. This exquisite marble sculpture pays tribute to her multi-dimensional being and represents the goddess as in classical literature: resplendent, victorious and gloriously seated upon her lion. The master craftsman easily manages to capture both a feeling of immense power as well as benevolence and peace through this exquisite artefact. Carved in an ancient Rajasthani style, dating back centuries, this masterpiece in marble makes a perfect addition to your living room or your puja room.

The journey of the lord from being the crown prince siddhrtha gautam to gautam buddha the enlightend one, was about a path to self discovery. This brass-stone sculpture beautifully captures the Lord in a relaxed posture reflecting on the consciousness of the soul.
