Hand-Carved Sculpture of the Historical Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha
We, Vajrayana artists from Kathmandu Valley, have masterfully hand-carved the Historical Buddha statue in the traditional Himalayan style. In the statue, the Buddha is depicted seated on top of a moon disc lotus seat in a lotus posture. He holds an alms bowl in his right hand while his left hand performs the 'Bhumisparsa mudra,' a hand gesture symbolizing one of the most important moments of Buddha's life, i.e., when the Buddha achieved enlightenment as he claimed the earth as his witness for it.
It is a beautiful piece made by our artists after months of hard work, and the addition of jewels to the statue only beautifies the statue more. Since many centuries ago, we have been creating old Vajrayana statues like this one. A perfect addition to your Buddhist Altar and a gift for any devout.

Shakyamuni Siddhartha Gautama was Buddha's original name. Only when he became the Buddha was he given the name Shakyamuni. Buddha means "awakened one" in Sanskrit. In his left hand, he carries an alms bowl filled with three priceless nectars, signifying his victory over the three demons of uncontrollable death, polluted aggregates, and delusion.
