Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka Painting is a traditional Tibetan Buddhist art honoring Siddhartha Gautama, the historical Buddha. Typically depicting him in a meditative Dhyanamudra pose with his right hand touching the earth in the Bhumisparsha mudra, the painting usually shows an alms bowl in his left hand and a peaceful visage with a topknot depicting his relinquishment of worldly life. Shakyamuni Buddha is represented with long earlobes (symbolizing his ancestry), a ushnisha (cranial protuberance signifying wisdom), and 3 horizontal lines around the neck (marking his resounding voice and impressive speech).

Shakyamuni Buddha is represented with a saffron-hued robe, symbolizing his asceticism and unobstructed spiritual clarity. The background of the Thangka painting  contains numerous colors and ornamental patterns. The hand motions of Shakyamuni Buddha, referred to as mudras, each express a deep meaning. His right hand touching the ground indicates his perfect understanding, while his left hand resting in the lap implies tranquility and meditation. Usually, Shakyamuni Buddha is situated on a lotus stand, a floral motif that epitomizes purity and wisdom emerging in an afflicted world.

Shakyamuni Buddha Thangkas are used in religious and ceremonial practices of Tibetan Buddhism. They honor the Buddha's life and teachings, serving as a focus for meditation. This paintings feature the founder of Buddhism and carry cultural and religious significance. Also prized by art collectors and enthusiasts, they are valuable and treasured. They both reflect Shakyamuni's legacy and serve as a reminder of his path to enlightenment and liberation.
