Bodhisattva Sculpture Statue
Bodhisattva Sculpture Statue. Merging meticulous detail with timeless imagery, the artist captured the devoted bodhisattva in rapt devotion, hands in supplication, and wearing a headdress topped by the flame that symbolizes nirvana. Based on an 18th-century Thai sculpture, this gallery piece is cast in quality designer resin highlighted with a gilded verdigris and gold metallic sheen. In Buddhism, a bodhisattva (Sanskrit: ?????????? bodhisattva; Pali: ???????? bodhisatta) is either an enlightened (bodhi) existence (sattva) or an enlightenment-being or, given the variant Sanskrit spelling satva rather than sattva, "heroic-minded one (satva) for enlightenment (bodhi)." Another term is "wisdom-being." It is anyone who, motivated by great compassion, has generated bodhicitta, which is a spontaneous wish to attain Buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings. The bodhisattva is a popular subject in Buddhist art.
