Samantabhadra is the primordial Buddha, depicted in union with his consort Samantabhadri symbolizing the simultaneous union of pure appearance and emptiness. Copper high quality, fully gilded statue. 8 inches high.
All our statues are cast using the "lost wax" process, which entails the melting away of each unique model of the Deity by the pouring of molten copper into the mould. The body is finished with chasing, oxidised, partially "mercury gilded" with real gold and a base plate added to allow for filling with mantras. The face is completed by the application of "cold gold" and the hand painting of its eyes.
