This antique mahogany finish artistic relief plate depicts five Buddhas in a variety of mudras, or sacred gestures. In Buddhist iconography, mudras invoke specific aspects of Buddha's identity (for example, as teacher, protector). They are extensively used during prayer rituals and mantra recitations. It is believed that mudras enable the practitioner to experience a connection with the Buddha being invoked. The 5 Buddha resin plate depicts Buddha in Bhumisparsha, Varada, Dharamchakra, Dhyana and Abhaya Mudra (from left to right). The Buddha plate measures 11.5 inches wide and 4 inches tall. Hand-finished, minor variations and imperfections add to the artistic character of each piece.
