Meditating, Buddha sits in the lotus pose with his hands in the bhumisparsa mudra . This mudra or hand gesture represents the moment when Buddha achieved enlightenment. As the story goes, Buddha was sitting in meditation with his left hand resting palm up in his lap, and his right hand touching the earth. Buddha was challenged by a demon, who asked him for a witness that would attest to his right to achieve enlightenment. To reply he touched the ground, asking Pthivi (the devi of the earth) that she witness his enlightenment. Adi Noviantara of Bali creates this beautiful statuette from bronze, with a slightly antiqued finish.

We started Novica with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all. Along the way, we discovered something very important – as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.
Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.
Our vision of the future is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. We reject that future!
Instead, we see a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become our drivers.
We see an open-minded world that builds deeper bonds across nations, religions, and communities, forging cultural understanding, mutual respect and admiration.
