40cm Hand Carved Wooden Standing Abhaya Mudra Buddha
This is a standing buddha with the Abhaya hand pose aptly located in the entryway of my home. The right hand is raised, with the palm facing outwards, joined fingers extended upwards.
The Abhaya Mudra hand gesture asserts power and confers the absence of fear on others. The Abhaya mudra is oftened accompanied with the Varada mudra (gesture of dispensing favors, charity, sincerity, welcome) as shown with the left hand. Standing buddhas are often depicted with this posture.
