Small Statue of Gautam Buddha, Enlightened being
In our studio, we created this beautiful art of the small Gautam Buddha statue using century-old craftsmanship passed down through generations. The figure was sculpted on a copper body and gilded with genuine 24k gold. One of the highlights of the figure is a hand-carved robe of the statue with intricate details embalmed in blue and red stone. He is depicted with a calm and serene expression atop a moon disc lotus seat. His right hand is in the earth-touching mudra, and his left hand is holding an alms bowl.

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 in life. 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.
