Traditional Himalayan Sculpture of Tsongkhapa
We have exquisitely crafted the body of Tsongkhapa by machine and carved the face with hand in this sculpture. We are Kathmandu Valley artists whose artisan has passed from generation to generation, reflecting Buddhism. We have magnificently portrayed the statue of a deity sitting atop a moon disc lotus seat, and the robe adorned with silver plate is mesmerizing. He carries a lotus in both hands, elegantly designed and sculpted by machine.

Tsongkhapa (1357–1419) is a well-known Tibetan religious philosopher. A devout monastic, Tsongkhapa took on the difficult task of locating and studying all of the Indian Buddhist classics in Tibet in his day. In his iconic form, wearing a tall yellow hat, he is the center of the Gelugpa sect that was dominant in Tibet until the Chinese takeover in 1951 and whose de facto leader is the Dalai Lama.
