Testaments to the world of Buddhist art
Buddhist art is a testament to the prosperity and diversity of this culture-historical era. The Buddha figure in particular, created from diverse materials and made throughout various ages and countries, is proof of the positive power of Buddhism and a symbol the art movement’s creative energy. Buddha depictions predominantly show him meditating in the sitting lotus position, with numerous specific details that are strictly stipulated due to their religious importance.
