Here brass, reconstituted turquoise and coral are used to create a spectacular figure of the Lord of Wisdom in Abhaya Mudra. The Abhayamudra (gesture of fearlessness) is a mudra (gesture) of reassurance and safety, dispelling fear and accords divine protection and bliss. In this mudra, the right hand is held upright, and the palm is facing outwards. This is one of the earliest mudrās found depicted on a number of Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain images. The abhayamudrā represents protection, peace, benevolence and the dispelling of fear. The Lord is also the Remover of Obstacles and the God of Good Luck.
