Buddha Heads have been one of the most popular iconographic representations of the Buddha and his characteristics. 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.
Many features of the Buddha heads represent different meanings according to the principles of Buddhism. Specifically a Buddha head is carved to represent the Buddha's wisdom along with the serene smile of the face symbolising the Buddha's peaceful and calm nature. Few of the most conspicuous features are the ushnisha, a large cranial bump on the head which represents the knowledge and wisdom the Buddha attained after being enlightened, the urna, a small hairy bump between the eyes of the Buddha which symbolises the all seeing supernatural vision that the Buddha has, the long ears signify the wealth he had during his life as a prince and the curly hair of the Buddha represent the nobility he possesses. The ushnisha sometimes takes the form of a flame which indicates illumination. 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.
The Buddha head statues are taken as the objects of great significance in Buddhism and by the followers of the religion. But this does not mean that the Buddha heads carry only religious significance as they possess much other significance in anyone's life. These sculptures also act as great objects of decoration of anyone's surroundings as they radiate the feeling of peace and calm around you. Along with the beautification of the surroundings, they spread the influence of peace and harmony around anyone's life.
