Gautama Shakyamuni Buddha | Traditional Buddhist Sculpture



Hand Carved Traditional Gautama Buddha Sculpture

The sculpture of Gautama Shakyamuni Buddha, seated on a moon disc lotus seat is depicted in this art. The halo surrounding his tranquil face is meticulously created and plated in pure 24k gold. This magnificent Buddha statue has a pure copper body that has been gilded with 24k gold. It took over a month to finish, including more than a couple of Kathmandu valley artisans whose skills have passed down from generation to generation. We have meticulously sculpted and designed the robe and lotus seat with precious stones and jewels in Himalayan art.

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.
