Traditional Hand-Painted Yamantaka Benefits Statue

The statue for Yamantaka Benefits is traditionally hand-crafted here in our studio. He is depicted atop buffalo that is crushing human form. He has a bull's head with his hair flowing upwards. On the right side, we have Yami holding a skullcup. With his right hand, he holds rejuvenating red blood of Great Bliss, Raktavarna. Behind the deity, we have the halo flames. The figurine is molded using oxidized copper. We have partly gilded the face of Yamantaka and Yami, the lotus throne, and the body ornaments with genuine 24K gold. At the same time, other parts are silver-plated. The upward-flowing hair, halo flames, and facial attributes are highlighted using acrylic paintings. We used a hammer and small chisels to hand-carve the intricate design patterns. To do delicate carvings, artists must have decades of experience This sculpture may be used during Buddhist celebrations and routine yoga or meditation sessions. It took us years of hard work to complete the statue. It weighs about 10.27kg. 

This will be a perfect gift to a practitioner like you from Nepal.

Yamantaka statue is shown in various ways, one of which is Yamataka Ekavira, which means "lone hero." He has a bull's or buffalo's head with long horns as the center head, among many other features. There are eight primary heads, with the Bodhisattva Manjushri's little crowned head at the pinnacle. Yamantaka dressed in an elephant-skin robe, a garland of freshly cut human skulls, snakes, interwoven bone ornament bracelets, necklaces, and a girdle. Except for his adornments, he is naked. A flaming halo is behind him, and his erect phallus has a crimson tip. He wields a chopping knife (Kartika) in his primary hands, symbolizing his power to sever the root of illusion.
