In March of 2015 we visited the home of our master statue artist, Meenu Shakya. You can see her hand-painting statues in our film from the trip.
This Padmasambhava statue is an exquisite one-of-a-kind master work. We are the sole distributer of Meenu Shakya's work in the USA. These statues are made over a 6 to 12 month process involving casting, creating wax molds, making plaster molds, pouring bronze into the molds and then intricately hand detailing before the finishing artists even see the statues. We are so proud to support traditional artists and this is one of the true master works.
Padmasambhava was a historical teacher who is said to have finally converted Tibet to Buddhism. He was a renowned scholar, meditator, and magician, and his mantra suggests his rich and diverse nature.
Statue measures approximately 9 inches tall, comes with staff.
