Traditional Shakyamuni Buddha Tibetan Sculpture
We have exclusively hand-carved the sculpture of Shakyamuni Buddha in the traditional Himalayan Art of Nepal. The deity is depicted seated atop a moon disc lotus seat with a calm and serene expression. His right hand is on earth touching mudra, while his left-hand holds an alms bowl. The body is molded using copper. This is then hand-craved with intricate design patterns, especially the robe. This took us months of hard work in our studio. The statue is also adorned with precious gemstones. The design patterns on the robe are the highlight of the statue. The copper body is glided with 24K pure gold.
This piece of art will be a perfect addition to your meditation shrine.

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.
