Traditional Himalayan Buddhist Art of Vairocana, The Great Illuminator Statue
Using a traditional Himalayan sculpting method, we have meticulously hand-carved the Vairocana The Great Illuminator Statue. The statue of a deity is perched on a moon disc lotus seat expressing Dhyani mudra. This one of the five Dhyani Buddhas was traditionally hand-carved from pure copper and covered in real 24K gold. This traditional Himalayan artwork, which is deeply rooted in Buddhism and the Nepali religion, took us a few months to carve. It would be a perfect gift for you to help in your Buddhism practice.
