Simple yet beautifully sculpted, Shakyamuni is depicted in his meditative mudra with his right hand in Earth-touching Mudra. This is the profound portrayal of that exact state in which the Sakyamuni attained Enlightenment and hence, became Buddha, the awakened one!

Shakyamuni Buddha was born as a prince in a royal family. He abandoned his palace life in order to figure out what was causing misery and how to cure it. He became enlightened after a long period of meditation (a Buddha). His enlightenment was the understanding of practical methods for teaching the way of awakening to everyone.
