Copper high quality statue with 'cold' gold painted face. Decorated with turqoise and coral coloured stones. 8 inches high. The female Buddha of compassionate activity, swift to help suffering beings. Her left hand in the refuge granting gesture holds a blue lotus and her right hand is open in the giving mudra.
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.
