Buddha is what is called a historical and religious figure who achieved enlightenment and spiritual realization. According to Buddhist belief, it was through the teachings of Buddha Siddhartha Gautama that the religion was founded. It is said that he attained enlightenment during a meditation under a tree called Bodhi, and soon after changed his name to Buddha.

The name Buddha comes from the Sanskrit word Buddha, which means "awakened. In Buddhism, an awakened person is one who becomes aware of reality and can live fully, free of dissatisfaction, discontent, and suffering.

Gautama Buddha rejected the idea of being a god, and Buddhism differs from other religions in being non-theistic. He considers himself a guide and master for human beings to reach through their own paths to inner peace.

In his representations, marks are usually shown that symbolize his spiritual awakening. The ears with long lobes and without earrings remind us that Buddha was from a noble family, which used to hang many ornaments as a way to show wealth and power, but that he abandoned them to seek the meaning of life. His third eye symbolizes great perception, and the Usnisa (element on top of the head) represents great mental acuity.
