Dipankara is a historical Buddha who is supposed to have lived for a hundred thousand years on Earth. The number of Buddhas that have existed in theory is tremendous, and they are sometimes referred to as "Thousand Buddhas." Each was responsible for a life cycle. Dipankara (also Dipamkara) was a Buddha who attained enlightenment eons before Gautama, according to certain Buddhist sources. Dipankara is usually shown as a seated Buddha, but standing Buddhas are widespread in China, Thailand, and Nepal; he usually forms a protective mudra (Abhaya mudra) with his right hand, but he sometimes makes it with both hands.
