Buddha figurines can be found in a large variety of different poses. While the most common is the sitting Buddha statue (otherwise known as the lotus position). This position of the Buddha statue has a deeper meaning than simply sitting. It displays an inner and outer balance of the mind and body; as well as a certain tranquility of the pose itself. It is also common to find these sitting Buddha statues set atop a pedestal of a lotus blossom; of which represents one’s enlightenment or emptiness.
