Buddhist Buddha Statue | Gold-Gilded Shakyamuni Buddha Traditional Sculpture

SKU: SBK1993


Gold-Gilded Traditional Buddhist Buddha Statue

The Buddhist Buddha Statue was expertly hand-carved in Nepal using traditional Himalayan craftsmanship. In this Buddhist sculpture, we depicted him meditating while perched on a moon disc lotus seat. We have masterfully wrapped priceless turquoise around the robe from arm to the knee. This artwork may be used in many Vajrayana practices for daily meditational exercises and interior house decoration. We had to sculpt, design, and carve the lotus seat, robe, and other necessities in the manner of the ancients, which took more than a months. All the hand carving was completed using a hammer and chisels. To highlight the facial attributes of the deity we used acrylic paintings. The figurine was molded using copper and later gilded with genuine 24K gold. Even the lotus seat and the alms bowl is decorated with precious gemstones. 

This 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.
