Handcrafted Manjushri Bodhisattva of Wisdom Statue for Meditation and Altars
Crafted with the utmost care and precision, this hand-carved copper Manjushri Bodhisattva of Wisdom Statue has a beautiful golden finish thanks to its gold gilding. It was made by traditionally trained Vajrayana artists who hand-carved the figure with hammers and chisels for more than a year. The statue is also acrylic painted, which provides it with a stunning colorful glow. In the statue, the bodhisattva of wisdom is depicted calmly seated atop a moon disc lotus seat wielding his fiery sword in his right hand, an indication of his ability to cut through ignorance and negativity. The bodhisattva can also be seen performing the 'Vitraka mudra,' a hand gesture that represents the transmission of Buddha's teaching with his left hand. An utpala flower also grows beside his left shoulder, a symbol of purity and enlightenment. The figure is bejeweled with beautiful and colorful stones enhancing the beauty of the overall figure.
The statue is perfect for any devotee like yourself and can be used for various Buddhist rituals and activities like meditation and yoga.
