Gold-Plated Himalayan Art Of Mahachakra Vajrapani
With the skillset and technique inherited over centuries, we have beautifully crafted the Mahachakra Vajrapani Statue in our studio.

He has flame-shaped brows, a mustache, and long, flowing hair above him. In the middle of Vajrapani's brow, his wisdom third eye is surrounded by flames of understanding energy that erupt from every crevice of his robust frame. In his right hand, he wields a vajra, and in his left, a lasso. The iconography is Vajrapani quite complex, and it took us months and months of hard work to complete. The process includes molding the statue using copper then, carving different patterns, and finally, gilding with gold,
This statue has accurate traditional iconography and fine details and will be a perfect gift to a devotee like you from Nepal.

Vajrapani, known as “chag na dor je” in Tibetan is one of the earliest deities of Mahayana Buddhism. He represents the power of all Buddhas. With the opening of the third eye, he looks ferocious. He is a Bodhisattva who represents the enlightened mind's energy, and his mantra reflects that characteristic. The dancing within the halo flames represents transformation. The holding of Vajra stands for power that cuts through the delusion’s darkness, and the lasso is to bind demons.
