One of a Kind Shakyamuni Buddha Hand Painted Statue

Our statue makers in Kathmandu are doing some incredible work recently.  This Shakyamuni Buddha is carved entirely by hand, then cast using the lost wax method.  Over 8 artists work on each of these statues, carving, making wax molds, pouring hot bronze, painting the gold faces and eyes and hand painting them.  Meenu Shakya, a master artisan did all the finishing work, it takes her months and sometimes years to complete a statue with such intricate details.  Note the extraordinary images painted on Buddhas lap and on his back.

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.
