Hand-Carved Oxidized Copper Statue of Seated Shakyamuni Buddha
Intricately handcrafted in our workshop, this traditional seated Shakyamuni buddha statue is full of unique Himalayan artistry. Shakyamuni Buddha can be seen in the statue sitting on a moon disc lotus with an alms bowl on his left lap and his usual expression of serenity and peace. With his left hand, he makes the "Bhumisparsa Mudra," which symbolizes one of the most significant events in the Buddha's life—the moment the Buddha attained enlightenment and declared the earth to be his witness. The statue has the elegance of antiquity because it is made of oxidized copper.
This piece is a perfect souvenir for any devotee like yourself and can be used in your daily practices and activities of meditation and yoga.

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.
