Hand-Carved Buddhist Vajrasattva Tibetan Statue
Vajrasattva Tibetan Statue was entirely hand-carved in our studio using traditional Himalayan art. The deity is seen holding a bell in his left hand at hip level and a Vajra in his right hand close to his chest while sitting serenely with his legs crossed on a moon disc atop a lotus seat. The vajra represents compassion, while the bell represents knowledge. Copper is used to mold the figurine. On the body, intricate decorative patterns are hand carved. The lotus seat, robe, halo, and embellishments all speak to the high caliber of this figure. With beautiful gemstones, we have artistically decorated deities. Alongside acrylic painting, we have gilded the figurine with 24K pure gold.
We have the materials that are of the highest quality to craft the statue. We assure you that this piece of art will last for many years.

Vajrasattva is typically regarded as the second patriarch in the Shingon Buddhist lineage, the first being Vairocana Buddha. According to Kukai's writings in Record of the Dharma Transmission, Nagarjuna encountered Vajrasatva in an iron tower in southern India, based on Amoghavajra's testimony. As recounted in the Mahavairocana Sutra, Vajrasatva inducted Nagarjuna into the abhiseka ceremony and entrusted him with the esoteric teachings he had gained from Vairocana Buddha. Kukai doesn't go into detail on Vajrasatva or his beginnings.
