This exquisite Shakyamuni Buddha 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 robes and body are hand painted with silver leaf. Extra time has been spent on this statue with intricate painting on front and back. We are the first shop to offer these masterpiece statues to the western public.
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.
Measures approximately 9 inches tall. Made of bronze with gold and hand painted motifs.
