A Buddha head has a deep red color and is carved by the hand. This serene carving has a mask style with a ring to allow hanging it on the wall.

Then, the white color of the base stands out among the red stains behind the surface, creating an attractive contrast against the textures and clay. The Buddha’s eyes show meditation, so the eyes are half-open. Lots of Buddhism schools that practice meditation has Buddhas that have eyes half-open yet unfocused.

Meaning of the Buddha Head: The Buddha’s head resembles social and spiritual awareness, meditation, and knowledge. Whenever we look at them, they remind us to live with kindness and consciousness. They encourage a sense of contentment and calmness. What makes Buddha monuments and artworks so popular both to the Buddhists and non-Buddhists is because they innately neutralize the space’s energy. In some depictions of a Buddha’s head, each part of the head has a corresponding representation of Buddhist thinking. Some explanations of other Buddha statues are also found on our website.
