Purely Hand Carved 24k Gold Gilded Seated Shakyamuni Buddha Statue

This statue of the seated Shakyamuni Buddha was traditionally crafted by the best craftsmen of Nepal.

He is depicted seated atop a moon disc lotus seat with a calm and serene expression draped in golden Kasaya robes. His right hand is slightly touching the earth, while his left hand holds an alms bowl. This statue took our craftsmen more than a year to complete with every detail in the statue given such fine intricate design patterns. The halo, robe, and lotus seat are beautifully carved. The elegant gold-plated halo illuminates his face, while the wonderfully carved lotus seat is seen as mesmerizing. We assure you that the materials used for the statue are of the highest quality and will last for years. You can use this figurine for different Buddhist Rituals and meditational practices.

The Buddhist tradition was founded by Shakyamuni Buddha. In the sixth century B.C.E., he lived and taught in India, at a period of rising religious and philosophical thinking from Greece to China. Siddhartha Gautama was born as the crown prince of the mighty Shakya Kingdom and was nurtured to be a king in line with his royal father's aspirations. However, when he was around 29 years old, he learned about people's tremendous pain in life. To uncover the reasons of this anguish and the methods to alleviate it, he abandoned his palace life and gave up his magnificent robes and gold.
