SKU: YTQ1927


Gold Plated Himalayan Artwork Of Yamantaka Deity

Using traditional methods, we have artistically made the Yamantaka Deity statue. The statue's body was oxidized copper, gilded with gold, and plated with silver. The deity is shown with 34 arms, 3 enormous glazed eyes, and fangs resembling the devil on top of a buffalo head with enormous horns. Each statue's 34 arms is represented, holding different ritual items, and each part has been expertly carved. The acrylic paint highlights the statue more, giving it a captivating appearance. We have different gilded parts of the statue with genuine 24K gold, and at the same time, the other parts are silver-plated. This unique combination of oxidized copper, gold, and silver gives this statue a unique look. We used a hammer and small chisels to hand-carve the intricate design patterns. To do delicate carvings, artists must have decades of experience as he has to create intricate design patterns on a small surface area. He has to fulfill every minute detail on the statue based on the traditional iconography in Buddhist scriptures. 

We worked diligently for years to complete this piece of art.
