Shakyamuni Buddha was born in Lumbini (Nepal) in the 6th century B.C. as a prince and heir of the Shakya clan.According to one traditional interpretation, Shakyamuni achieved Buddhahood ions in the past, long before his descent to this earthly plane 2500 years ago as the historical Buddha.Shakyamuni Buddha is shown seated in the full cross-legged posture known as the Vajra position indicating the firmness and unwavering strength of his concentration.His right hand is in the earth touching gesture symbolising his victory over all interference and defeat of Mara, while his left hand rests on his lap.The Shakyamuni Buddha cradles a begging bowl in his left hand one of the few personal possessions of a Buddhist monk- which is filled with three nectars of wisdom, long life and freedom from disease. The artist has further decorated the bowl with pieces of a mythical fruit said to possess spiritual and medicinal potency.
