Himalayan Gold Plated Art of Siddhartha Buddha Gautama
We have exclusively hand-carved the statue of Siddhartha Buddha Gautama in the traditional Himalayan Art of Nepal. We have depicted the deity with meditative eyes, seated atop a moon disc lotus seat holding an alms bowl with his left hand. The right hand of Shakyamuni reaches down to touch the ground, signifying the moment when he summoned the earth to witness his ascension into the Buddhahood. The statue is molded using copper glided with 24K pure gold. We have craved intricate design patterns on the halo, robe, and lotus seat.
This figurine will be a perfect gift from Nepal to a devotee like you who will aid you in daily practices such as 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.
