- This Shakyamuni statue is handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal by a 5th generation crafting family using traditional methods.
- Each bronze statue is made using the lost wax method. After casting, it is hand detailed and carved by master craftsmen before being completely 14K gold-plated. Finally, the Buddha's face is painted with gold.
