• The Buddha is well represented in many iconographic forms. Along with many Buddha statues and images, Buddha Heads have been one of the most popular iconographic representations of the Buddha and his characteristics. A round, youthful, charming and sweet looking face is a typical characteristic of the head of Buddha but there are more to them than what meets the eye. Regarded as one of the most important parts of the body of the Buddha, Buddha heads are crafted so as to represent the vast wealth of knowledge he possesses being the awakened one. Specifically a Buddha head is carved to represent the Buddha's wisdom along with the serene smile of the face symbolizing the Buddha's peaceful and calm nature. The facial expression of a Buddha head is mostly serene with the half closed eyes which means he is closed in meditation with a gentle smile on the lips.
