Shakyamuni Buddha


This Buddha figure was obtained from a scan of a sculpture probably from the Xiangtang Shan cave temple complex in northern China. The traditional representation of Shakyamuni Buddha or the Historical Buddha shows the moment of his enlightenment in Bodh Gaya, India, which has become the holiest Buddhist pilgrimage site in the world.

This sculpture in the style of the Indian Gupta dynasty stands out for its decoration, a halo adorned with flowers, an inner ring of lotus petals, the draping of the clothing and the rounded and delicately carved face. The original was made of limestone with plaster, paint and gilding, traces of which can still be found. The original is estimated to date from 550 - 577 AD and belongs to the Northern Qi Dynasty.
