Himalayan Shakyamuni Buddha Sitting On Lotus Statue
We are the Kathmandu Valley artists that meticulously handcrafted the Buddha Sitting On Lotus Statue in the traditional Himalayan Art style. It is a work of art that is unique as it is composed of acrylic painting, gold gilding, and silver plating. The oxidized copper is used to form the figurine's body. The exquisite patterns on the kasaya robe were hand-carved masterfully. The Buddha's face and the edge of the robe have been gilded with real 24K gold. The robe, on the other hand, has silver plating. The deity is depicted with a tranquil look sitting on a moon disc lotus in a cross-legged position. While carrying an alms bowl in his left hand, he performs the earth-touching mudra with his right hand to symbolize his attainment of enlightenment.
This Gautama Buddha Statue has accurate traditional iconography and fine details and will be a perfect gift to a devotee like you from Nepal.

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.
