Shakyamuni Buddha 6"



Partial gilded Shakyamuni Buddha statue. Beautiful detail, hand made in Patan, Nepal by experience artist in the age old tradition of lost wax method. 

Buddha Shakyamuni, at the moment of enlightenment, invoked the earth as witness as indicated by the fingers of his right hand, which spread downward in bhumisparshanamudra, the "gesture of touching the earth." As the buddhist sutra relate, the sun and moon stood still, and all the creatures of the world came to offer obeisance to the supreme one who had broken through the boundaries of egocentric existence.  

Buddha Shakyamuni Statue: Made out of copper and gold plate with gold leaf on the face. He offers limitless compassion and blessings to all beings in the three realms.

Size: 6" X 4" lotus.
