- This incredible Maitreya Buddha statue is handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal by a 5th generation crafting family. It has been in the DharmaShop personal collection for years!
- It is made using the traditional lost wax method, which takes considerable time and skill. After bronze casting, each statue is hand detailed and carved by master craftsmen and painted with gold leaf.
- As you can see in the photos, this statue is full of gorgeous golden detail and comes with wooden stand for Maitreya to sit upon.
Maitreya is a unique Bodhisattva known as "the future Buddha." It is believed that Maitreya will appear on Earth in the future, achieve complete enlightenment and nirvana, and teach the pure dharma.
DharmaShop founders, Sander and Christy Cohen, have kept this statue in their personal collection for many years. Its beauty and hopeful energy have graced their homes and offices as our small business, along with our community of artisans and customers, continues to grow. Maitreya has been a meaningful symbol that reminds us to look forward to the future with positivity and optimism. This statue has been truly inspiring for us, and we hope it can do the same for you!
