I just received the Medicine Buddha Statue as photographed above, this afternoon, 12 May 2018. For a statue of this size the detail is truly exquisite, the Gold plating amazing. Bottom though open, is very nicely covered with a piece of decorative heavy foil. It came nicely wrapped as most items do from dharma shop and securely packed, thank goodness , USPS had a field day with the box. All is well. I am very pleased once again with my purchase, oh, a special thank you to Alexandra of dharma shop, for assisting me with this purchase.
