Buddah The “Buddah” statue is a work of art that sends powerful messages of the past and present to its viewers within one glimpse. The creator definitely had one thing in mind when it was being made.. and that is to grab attention. The “Buddah” is a statue of exactly what it is called, Buddah. This statue is an oversized figure that gives off a feeling of powerfulness.
It is made out of granite, which is a type of rock that is a rusty brownish color with white speckles. This rock material suits the statue nicely in the fact that Buddah sits confidently and in a rock solid state of mind. It also allows the light to reflect off of the statue and almost makes it glow. His eyes appear to be closed, which makes him look he could be concentrating on something and the smile on his facial expression gives off a feeling and theme of calmness. His nose is large and long. This fills up most of his face, but at the same time, appears to be in proportion.
Though this statue is great in size, it does not look as if it were meant to scare people at all. Buddah’s body is curvy and round. He is sitting with his legs crossed and each part of his body is touching another part, (ex: arms resting on legs) making the whole figure come together and flow as one solid object. Each of Buddah’s individual features put together, especially his size, make him seem like a pleasant, yet strong and powerful man of importance. History Essays.
