Traditionally Molded Shakyamuni Buddha Guide Statue
The Shakyamuni Buddha Guide Statue was expertly hand-carved by us using Nepal's traditional Himalayan style. The deity is depicted sitting cross-legged on the lotus in a meditative position, with the soles of his feet pointed skyward and his back perfectly straight. He wears a monk robe that covers his left shoulder and has a complex hand-carved pattern. It took us months of hard work and unwavering commitment to shaping the body using copper. We have gilded the face, part of the lotus seat, and the robe with genuine 24K gold. The edge of the robe and the other part of the lotus seat is silver plated. The gilding of the gold and silver plating and the color of oxidized copper make the statue of the historical buddha enthralling.
This Shakyamuni Buddha statue may be used for a variety of Buddhist rituals, as well as for meditation and yoga.

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.
