Intricately Hand-Carved Statue of Amitayus Buddha for long life and Peace
We are Kathmandu Valley artists who have been creating Vajrayana sculptures that have been passed down from generation to generation, like this Amitayus statue. The statue depicts the serene and peaceful Amitayus Buddha seated atop a moon disc lotus, with an alms bowl held in both hands, forming the 'Dhyan Mudra.' His facial expression is beautifully accentuated with acrylic paints, while his headpiece, ornaments, and halo are adorned with exquisite gemstones. The statue has been meticulously hand-carved from copper and gilded with gold using traditional techniques passed down from generations of Nepali artisans, who have carefully created intricate patterns and motifs that add to its magnificence. The entire process of carving and gilding takes several months, ensuring that the statue is of the highest quality and built to last for years to come.
The statue is perfect for any devotee like yourself and can be used for various Buddhist rituals and activities like meditation and yoga.

Amitayus, of the Aparimitagunasamchaya or Amitavyhavat pure world, is usually shown in his apparitional buddha form (sambhogakaya), red in color, wearing a crown and jewels, and holding a long-life vase over two hands in a meditation gesture. A Buddha is said to have three bodies in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition: a form body (nirmanakaya), an apparitional body (sambhogakaya), and an ultimate truth body (sambhogakaya) (dharmakaya).
