Traditional Himalayan Hand-Sculpted Paldan Lhamo Statue
The Paldan Lhamo Statue was meticulously hand-carved from oxidized copper and gilded with real 24-karat gold. We've depicted the deity with a wrathful facial expression seated on a sun disc above a mule. She holds a sandalwood staff with her right hand and a skull cup with her left hand. She crosses a sea of blood, holding a skull cup filled with brains while decked with skulls. The combination of gold gilding, silver plating, and oxidized copper color gives the statue a mesmerizing look. The halo flames placed behind the deity are artistically hand-carved. We used a hammer and small chisels to hand-carve the intricate design patterns. To do delicate carvings, artists must have decades of experience
This sculpture may be used in a variety of Buddhist ceremonies as well as in ordinary yoga or meditation practices.
