Handmade Traditional Palden Lhamo Empowerment Sculpture
We are Kathmandu Valley artists who have been creating Vajrayana sculptures that have been passed down from generation to generation, like this Palden Lhamo empowerment statue. The deity is depicted in this statue riding a mule over blazing flames, signifying both her prowess in negotiating treacherous terrain and her function as a defender of the Dharma. She bears a trident in her left hand, signifying her ability to overcome challenges, and a skull cup in her right hand, signifying the transience of life and the need to develop objectivity.
This piece is an excellent souvenir for any devotee like yourself and can be used in your daily practices and activities of meditation and yoga.
