Little bit about Samadhi Buddha Statue

This is the Lord Buddha statue made of a special kind of marble known as the dolomite marble. The eyes are fitted with crystals and they seem to be deep and sparkly. This size of the statue is approximately 7ft in height. Samadhi Buddha statue is considered as one of the best sculptures in the Island due to its unique creation. The creativity of expressing different emotions from different angles on the same face of the statue cannot be left applauded. From the front, the face of the statue is emotionless. Try to look at the face from its left side, and you will spot a slight sadness on the face. When looking from the right side, instead you will spot a smile.
