Shakyamuni Buddha Art | Traditional Hand Carved Statue



Traditionally Hand Carved Shakyamuni Buddha Art

Shakyamuni Buddha art is exquisitely hand-carved in copper and genuinely gilded in 24k gold. We have depicted Buddha sitting on a moon disc lotus throne with a meditative expression. We carved this statue using traditional Himalayan styles and embellished it with gold plates and valuable ornaments. Since we spent a lot of time designing the large lotus throne and other essential parts, the sculpture took more than a month to finish. This magnificent statue will be a wonderful meditation gift from Nepal to a practitioner like you.

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.
