This Shakyamuni statue is handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal by a 5th generation crafting family. Each bronze statue is made using the lost wax method, which takes considerable time and skill. After casting, each statue is hand detailed and carved by master craftsmen and the Buddha's face is painted with gold.
The Shakyamuni Buddha was a spiritual master who lived and taught in modern day India and Nepal. Shakyamuni taught others to be awakened to the true nature of reality and freed from suffering.
Statue measures approximately 13 inches tall.
