The tradition of crafting Buddha statues, a rich tapestry of spirituality and artistry, traces its roots back to ancient India around the 1st century CE, post the passage of Siddhartha Gautama, renowned as the Buddha. Initially, depictions were rare, with symbols like footprints and empty thrones symbolizing his presence.
Influenced by the Greco-Buddhist art of Gandhara and Mathura regions, the earliest Buddha statues emerged, portraying the enlightened one in human form.
