Style



The essence of style dates back to Gupta times with the characteristic hairstyle made of hair curls, the unisha at the top (protrusion on the top of the head resembling a bun) and the ears elongated (see Sarnath Buddha).

The well-proportioned lines and the aquiline nose mark the Greek influence on Indian sculpture of this period.

Before renouncing palace life and his destiny as a prince, Siddhartha Gautama wore the attributes of nobles and wealth, including earrings: the elongated ears mark the sign of this previous existence and its renunciation.



This statuette symbolizes: serenity.

The third eye symbolizes the fire of knowledge. His eyes remain half-closed, the face is serene, entirely internalized. The face is perfectly balanced.

Customer reviews

« Very happy with the gift I gave myself with the statuette of Shiva Nataraj representing the cosmic wheel with his multiple arms. Bertrand Bellaize, through his relationship with Indian artisans, puts us in direct contact with tribal art, far from the international trade organized for mass production. I can savor every day the purity of the delicate gestures of the Shiva and thus open myself to the surge of spirituality that this symbolism offers me. » (Pierre J)
 
« I, who often did not know what to give as a gift, here is the 3rd statue of Ganesh Art India that I offer in a year, this time a bust of a Bastar woman with an "inaccessible gaze". With joy in many facets: seeing the delighted expression of the person to whom I am giving the gift, allowing a gifted but unknown Indian artist to earn a little better a living and living a simple and perfect transaction with Ganesh Art India. Bertrand Bellaize is a reliable and careful person and his statues are even more beautiful in real life than in photos. » (Eric D.)
 
« The statue that I have just received is magnificent. A presence emanates from it which rejoices the heart. I would also like to compliment the Ganesh Art team for the extreme care they take in packing their statues. I find this love of a job well done very touching. » (Frederic B)
