Finely crafted statue of Buddha Shakyamuni in partially gilded copper with turquoise and coral detailing. The face is delicately hand painted with pure gold pigment. Made in Nepal, each statue is carefully selected for the Ratna Shop based on its overall elegance, graceful proportions and accuracy in depicting the deity it represents.
Buddha Shakyamuni is the most recognizable of all Buddhist icons. Having attained complete enlightenment 2500 years ago, his teachings, coalesced as Buddhism, have flourished worldwide. An exquisite addition to your shrine to support and enhance your visualisation practices.
Statues are hollow, and should be filled with mantras, incense, and precious substances before practicing upon. Through the generous efforts of our in-house Lama who has received these instructions from a genuine master, you can request your statue to be filled here before shipping. To avoid extra delays, simply add a comment in the shopping cart.
When handling or cleaning your statue, take extreme care particularly with the face, as the pure gold pigment is very delicate, and any repairs would need to take place in Nepal. Please also set the intention to meet with an authentic master to have your statue consecrated directly.
Measures 25.5 x 20 x 12 cm, with a weight (before filling) of 1981g.
