Traditionally Gold Gilded Tibetan Buddhist Monk Je Tsongkhapa Statue
We have masterfully hand-carved the Je Tsongkhapa statue in the traditional Himalayan style. Hand-carved from a copper body and gilded with 24k genuine gold, which highlights the intricate design patterns of the statue. The revered monk, Tsongkhapa, is depicted with a pandit hat, which represents his role as a scholar and his focus on the study of the practice of the Dharma, seated atop a moon disc lotus seat. Two Utpal flowers bloom beside the spiritual master's shoulders, with a sword and a book lying on top of the flowers. His two hands come together in front of his chest to for the 'Dharmachakra mudra,' the gesture of teaching the Wheel of Dharma.
Since many centuries ago, we have been creating old Vajrayana statues like this one. A perfect addition to your Buddhist Altar and a gift for any devout.

Tsongkhapa (1357–1419) is a well-known Tibetan religious philosopher. A devout monastic, Tsongkhapa took on the difficult task of locating and studying all of the Indian Buddhist classics in Tibet in his day. In his iconic form, wearing a tall yellow hat, he is the center of the Gelugpa sect that was dominant in Tibet until the Chinese takeover in 1951 and whose de facto leader is the Dalai Lama.
