The Polychrome Standing Buddha One Hand Up is a representation of the fearlessness of Buddha, which in the Buddhist iconography is called Abhāya mudrā. This posture or mudra is generally made with the arm bent, the right hand raised to shoulder height, the fingers pointing upwards and the palm facing outwards. The left hand is usually hanging down and the Buddha is standing, which means he’s preching rather thn meditating. The mudra shows the gesture the Buddha made when he wanted to dissipate fear in the face of adversity or when he wanted to enjoin others to do so. (H.104.5cm x W. 30cm x L. 19.8cm)

The Right hand raised is known in Buddhist iconography as the "calming animals” gesture, because it’s believed that Buddha used it for soothing an elephant that wanted to kill him. There are several scripts and frescoes in which we can see the Buddha subduing an elephant by his spiritual power. The “mudrā of no-fear" also represents benevolence, peace, protection, besides being the symbol of dispelling of fear. Before the beginning of Buddhism, the mudrā was probably a gesture for proposing friendship and a symbol of good intentions when approaching strangers. In Mahāyāna, the gods and deities are often shown as mutual friends by using this gesture of the hand.

 

"... In the Theravāda, it is usually made with the right hand raised to shoulder height, the arm bent and the palm facing outward with the fingers upright and joined and the left hand hanging down while standing."
