Buddha’s Hand

Buddha's Hand

11″ x 11″  Buddha’s Hand is an assemblage. The background is comprised of an antique image in gold ink. Buddha’s face is drawn with pencil on vellum and painted in gold on the back – my favorite of the many depictions of Buddha’s image. The gold wire hand to the left of the face is a mudra – a symbolic gesture.

“The thumb and index finger of the right hand stand for wisdom and method combined. The other three raised fingers symbolize the teaching of the Buddhist doctrine, which leads sentient beings to the paths of the beings of three capacities who follow the combined path of method and wisdom.” http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/history/mudras.htm
