We, the artist of Kathmandu valley, sculpted this exquisite Chenrezig statue in Nepal, whose artisan has passed from generation to generation. Deity is depicted sitting atop a moon disc lotus seat with a serene expression. The jewels and ornaments are finely hand-carved with precious gems and gold. Using acrylic paintings, we crafted this magnificent statue in a pure copper body and gilded it with 24k gold. The elegant crown of the deity is embellished with valuable turquoise and corals.

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 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.
