  • An amazing Medicine Buddha statue featuring intricate hand painted details including Tibetan dragons!
  • 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 Tibetan dragons, flowers, and swimming fish.  Dragons have special meaning and symbolism in many cultures.  They are fierce protectors and wise leaders, guardians and sages.  Tibetan dragons are protectors of Buddhism whose thunderous voices awaken us from delusion.  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.
