Seated Buddha in Cave 10 | Photos of Ellora Caves, India
This rock cut statue of the Buddha with teaching mudra seated on a throne is in the stunning Cave 10 at Ellora.
Cave 10, one of the most spectacular caves at Ellora, is known as the Vishvakarma Cave or alternatively as the Carpenter's Cave because the domed ceiling has been carved to look like wooden beams. The cave is a worship hall. The Buddha is flanked by two standing Bodhisattvas. Built in 650CE.
A convention for the Future Buddha, Maitreya, is that he is shown with the teaching mudra and seated on a throne (rather than cross legged on the floor) so this image is probably that of Maitreya, the Buddha yet to be.
We've put a black frame around the image as a presentation suggestion. The prints are supplied without a border.
