The halo behind his serene face is exquisitely handcrafted and embedded with pure 24k gold. We have crafted this exquisite Buddha statue in a pure copper body and gilded it with 24k gold. It took more than a month to complete with more than two artists of Kathmandu valley whose artisan has passed from generation to generation.

Siddhartha Gautama was born as the crown prince of the mighty Shakya Kingdom and 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. He abandoned his palace life and gave up his magnificent robes and gold to uncover the reasons for this anguish and the methods to alleviate it. After nearly six years of study, self-deprivation, and severe concentration, he achieved his aim. He had attained enlightenment (a Buddha). He claimed to have then proceeded to a deer park in Sarnath (Benares), India, on the outskirts of Varanasi.
