This first pencil drawing is of the Sleeping Buddha, the huge stone statue of Buddha at Ajanta. The link to the original post is given at the bottom of the post.
The Buddha in a meditation pose has been sketched from the photograph of the Golden Buddha in Xian, China, in the pagoda complex. The link to the post is at the bottom of this post. The expression on Buddha's face is peaceful and calm, as always.
The sketch below is from a photograph shot at Ajanta. This statue of the Buddha (on which the drawing is based) adorned the entrance of a cave at Ajanta. Buddha's hand as depicted in this statue looks very large, and it is so in several portrayals of Buddha at Ajanta. This makes one wonder if his hand was really this huge, or perhaps just larger than that of other human beings.
