  • $26.72

Kandy kings- Buddhist bronze medieval coins of Ceylon -obverse impression of a standing figure of a man with head turned to the right and with two curved lines on either side of the legs slightly turned upwards at the end indicating the figure is wearing a 'dhoti'. The figure stands on a lotus stem or stalk with a lotus flower to the right. The lotus (Sanskrit and Tibetan padma) is one of the eight auspicious symbols and one of the most poignant representations of Buddhist teaching. -The roots of a lotus are in the mud, the stem grows up through the water, and the heavily scented flower lies pristinely above the water, basking in the sunlight. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment. Though there are other water plants that bloom above the water, it is only the lotus which, owing to the strength of its stem, regularly rises eight to twelve inches above the surface.-The Right Side Elbow Is Curved Down With The Arm Turned Upwards And The Hand Holds A Flower Presumed To Be A Jasmine Blossom. The Left Arm Is Extended Outwards And Curved Downwards Holding An Ornamental Lamp. -The Design On The Reverse- On The Left Side Of The Coin Deva-Nagari Or Sanskrit Script Is Visible Which Indicates The Name Of The Ruler. The Figure Resembles A Dancing Figure. The Left Arm Is Raised Upwards And The Hand Holds A Conch Shell Another Of The 8 Auspicious Symbols. The Conch Shell Is Akin To The Bugle. It Is An Emblem Of Power, Authority And Sovereignty Whose Blast Is Believed To Banish Evil Spirits, Avert Natural Disasters, And Scare Away Poisonous Creatures. Today, The Conch Is Used In Tibetan Buddhism To Call Together Religious Assemblies. During The Actual Practice Of Rituals, It Is Used Both As A Musical Instrument And As A Container For Holy Water.
