The reclining buddha, which depicts the Buddha's parinirvana, is the largest in Gal Vihara.
At 46 feet 4 inches (14.12 m) in length, the reclining image is the largest statue in Gal Vihara, and also one of the largest sculptures in Southeast Asia. It depicts the parinirvana of the Buddha, who is lying on his right side with the right arm supporting the head on a bolster, while the left arm lies along the body and thigh. The palm of the right hand and the soles of the feet have a single lotus flower carved on them.

Charles Godakumbure, a former Commissioner of the Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka, has stated that the bolster upon which the Buddha rests his head has been so well carved that it looks like a cotton stuffed pillow rather than one carved from rock.

The upper foot?the left foot of the buddha?is slightly withdrawn to indicate that the image depicts that the Buddha has attained parinirvana, and is not merely lying down.

Over Inez Wijker

My name is Inez Wijker and I am a passionate photographer.

My specialty is capturing a specific spontaneous moment in time. I call my photographs "magic moments", because they are often made in a magical split second.

For me photography is a way to record everything I like or think is fascinating or am otherwise touched by. Feelings are in that moment 100% leading.
