Gold Gilded Sculpture of The Shakyamuni Buddha
The artist of Kathmandu valley has dexterously sculpted this sculpture of the Shakyamuni Buddha in a pure copper body and gilded it with genuine 24k gold. We took more than a month to craft this statue as the ornaments and embellishments are designed and deft in traditional Himalayan art. Deity is seated atop a moon disc lotus seat in a tranquil expression and the gold coated halo is illuminating his face. This exquisitely hand carved statue will be a great gift for 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.
