Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka
Shakyamuni Buddha Thangkas are a classic form of Tibetan Buddhist art with Siddhartha Gautama, better known as Gautama Buddha, as the centerpiece. He is revered as the originator of Buddhism and referred to as the "Awakened One" who acquired knowledge via the Bodhi tree.
In Shakyamuni Buddha thangkas, Siddhartha Gautama is typically depicted in the meditative "Bhumisparsha mudra" pose, arm outstretched and left hand resting in his lap. This gesture symbolizes the exact moment he achieved enlightenment, calling on the earth to serve as witness. His facial features are serene and tranquil, conveying his inner peace. He dons a monastic robe and is distinguished by the "urna" (eyebrow curl) and the "ushnisha" (cranial bump), indicating his enlightened qualities.
