The meditating Buddha statues are sculptures that highlight the Dhyana mudra. When performing this form of meditation the Buddha can be seen sitting in the lotus position form, which highlights tightly crossed legs. The meditating Buddha performing the Dhyana mudra has both hands in the lap with palms upward. The holding hands indicate the perfect balance of thought, rest of the senses, and tranquility. This statue is crafted from a durable long lasting stone designed to last outdoors in all weather conditions for years to come. Each item is handcrafted, therefore no two are identical. This dry cast stone has been around for centuries and has proven to be a quality, durable and most attractive alternative to other materials. The nature of this stone gives it a number of advantages for use in garden and architectural applications.
