Hand-Carved Statue of the Seated Shakyamuni Buddha for Meditation and Spirituality
We created this stunning gold statue of seated Shakyamuni buddha in our studio using a traditional Himalayan carving technique passed down from generation to generation from Nepal. The statue is comprised of oxidized copper, providing it with the elegance of antiquity. In the statue, Shakyamuni Buddha can be seen seated atop a moon disc lotus with an alms bowl over his lap on his left hand with his characteristic calm and peaceful appearance. He forms the 'Bhumisparsa Mudra' in his left hand, representing one of the most important moments of Buddha's life, i.e. when the Buddha achieved enlightenment as he claimed the earth as his witness for it.
Truly a perfect addition to your Buddhist shrine or can be used as a meditative accompaniment for yourself or for any devotee.

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.
