    Hello
    I found this sterling silver Buddha statue that is 2 1/2" tall and 2 1/8" wide.
    It weighs 203 grams. It was tested with a Scientific Niton gun to be .950 silver. I cannot ID the engraving on the bottom and am not sure if it is old or new? Any help would be appreciated. It appears to be a Tibetan Medicine Buddha.

    Thank you
    Bryen M.

      This is the 'Earth Touching Pose' of the Shakyamuni Buddha, right hand palm down over the knee, left hand palm up over the lap. Here are two more:
