Gold Gilded Traditional Himalayan Vairocana Buddha Statue
Traditionally crafted, this Vairocana statue was flawlessly crafted by the master craftsmen of Nepal, carving intricate designs on every inch of the statue. The statue is made from a copper body gilded with 24k genuine gold. The deity sits upon a tibetian cushion with intricate lotus flower designs, and the deity is draped in kasaya robes. The tips of his two hands, the thumbs and forefingers, are in contact as they are pressed against his chest. He is making the Dharmachakra Mudra, a gesture that symbolizes teaching and spinning the Wheel of Dharma, to demonstrate his ability to vanquish ignorance. This statue took our artists almost a year to complete, perfecting the details. It would be a perfect gift for you to help in your Buddhism practice.
