Four Armed Avalokiteshvara Sculpture | Traditional Chenrezig Himalayan Art



Traditional Himalayan art of Four-Armed Avalokiteshvara Sculpture 

We, the artist of the Kathmandu valley, have finely hand-craft the Four-Armed Avalokiteshvara Sculpture in the classic Himalayan tradition. The body of the statue is made using copper. It is then glided using 24K pure gold. The shine of the gold on the statue makes it more vibrant. The deity is depicted seated on the moon disc on a lotus holding a crystal rosary in his upper-right hand while a lotus in his upper left and a wish-fulfilling jewel with his lower hand. The skillset of molding such a craft has been passed down for generations. The molding of the copper body, gliding with gold, and embedding the statue with precious gens and corals took us months of hard work to completion. This art of Himalayan will be a tremendous mediational gift from Nepal to a practitioner like you.

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.
