The Protection Buddha's hand gesture, or mudra, has the right hand raised facing palm-out with the left hand rested on his lap. The posture, with one leg resting on top of the other, is known as the single lotus position. The lotus flower in the center of Buddha's right palm symbolizes his purity. In Buddhism, the lotus flower is also a symbol of fortune.
The dark red robe contrasts vividly with the Buddha's golden body. The detailed, precise work of our craftsmen is best exemplified by the intricate details of the head and face and in the carefully applied coloring of the robe and body.
