Tibetan Art Gold Plated Of Blessing Buddha
We have masterfully and traditionally crafted the Blessing Buddha statue. Handmade from copper, the statue was gilded using pure 24-karat gold. The application of acrylic paint further highlights the features of the deity. We have portrayed the deity seated atop a moon disc lotus with a serene look on his face, holding an alms bowl over his lap with his left hand and doing the mudra of the right hand touching the ground with his right hand. He is dressed in elaborate Kasaya robes with complex embroidery patterns. For the completion of this artwork, it took us months of day and night hard work. The gilding of the gold gives the statue a fine shine, and further polishing was done to give the figurine a more genuine appearance.

Siddhartha Gautama was born as the crown prince of the mighty Shakya Kingdom and nurtured to be a king in line with his royal father's aspirations. However, when he was around 29 years old, he learned about people's tremendous pain. He abandoned his palace life and gave up his magnificent robes and gold to uncover the reasons for this anguish and the methods to alleviate it. After nearly six years of study, self-deprivation, and severe concentration, he achieved his aim. He had attained enlightenment (a Buddha). He claimed to have then proceeded to a deer park in Sarnath (Benares), India, on the outskirts of Varanasi.
