Buddhist Avalokiteshvara Sculpture | Gold Plated Himalayan Art

SKU: CHR1820


Traditionally Gold Plated Buddhist Avalokiteshvara Sculpture

We have created the Buddhist Avalokiteshvara Sculpture entirely using the techniques handed down for generations. To emphasize the unique design patterns of the sculpture, the figure was expertly carved with a copper body gilded with 24k real gold, and carefully painted with acrylic paint. He is depicted sitting on a moon disc lotus seat with a serene look. He is holding rosary beads in one hand and a fully opened lotus blossom in the other. His two hands in the front are forming a prayer gesture. We have adorned the deity with garments, jewelry and a crown adorned with precious gemstones. The unique design patterns found only in Nepal took usmonths of hard work and dedication to create.

This statue has accurate traditional iconography and fine details and will be a perfect gift to a devotee like you from Nepal.

Chenrezig epitomizes the bodhisattva's determination to delay attaining Buddhahood until he has assisted every sentient being on Earth in achieving freedom from pain and the cycle of death and rebirth. His name has been translated as "the lord who observes in all directions." The practice of Chenrezig/Avalokiteshvara is encouraged to develop of a calm and compassionate heart. Compassion is the root foundation for excelling in the Buddhist path. He listens to the prayers of all sentient beings in times of challenge and difficulty.
