Maitreya, Future Buddha, Cave 11 | Photos of Ellora Caves, India
This carved statue of the seated Buddha with teaching mudra is in Cave 11 at Ellora.
I'm pretty sure this this photo was taken in Cave 11 at Ellora. The Buddha is seated on throne in a niche and in this photo is seen between a row of massive plain, unadorned stone pillars.
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.
