  • A gorgeous blue Medicine Buddha statue featuring intricate hand painted details including lotus flowers on the robes and the Dharma Wheel at the base.
  • Made over a 3-5 month long process involving casting, creating wax molds, making plaster molds for bronze pouring, and then hand detailing and carving before the finishing artists even see the statues.
  • After being hand detailed and expertly carved by master craftsmen, the statue is then sent to the finishing artists to be hand painted with beautiful colors and gold accents.  Each and every detail is truly incredible and takes months to create.

Statue features the Medicine Buddha seated on a lotus platform, holding a vase in the left hand and meditating calmly.  The Medicine Buddha is a deity of compassion and healing.  He is believed to alleviate suffering for mental and physical illness.  Often his image is shown with rays of lapis lazuli light radiating from his crown.

This statue is full of colorful painted detail including lotus flowers and the Dharma Wheel.  The lotus flower, in many cultures, represents purity and peace, blooming through the mud.  The Dharma Wheel is one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols that represents the turning wheel of Buddha's teachings.  The face of the statue is painted with gold leaf in the traditional manner.

Statue measures approximately 5.75 inches tall and 3.75 inches wide at the base.  Handmade in Nepal.
