This exquisite Manjushri statue is handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal by the Shakya family. This family has been making bronze statues for many generations and is well known all over the world.
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 women. It is then painted with gold and inlaid with turquoise, red coral, lapis, and various gemstones.
** There is a missing stone on the back of the statue; price reflects this small inconsistency. **
Measures approximately 8 inches tall.
