Our master artisan created our beautiful 14″ Chenrezig statue with the jewelry and crown of a Bodhisattva. Please find that the artisan has also embellished the crown and jewels with special stones. The statue wears the stones well and expresses the finest monastic quality found in Tibetan monasteries. Nepali artisans have indeed been the preferred source of statues for the Tibetan monasteries for many centuries.
The cintamani “wish fulfilling” jewel is pressed between the palms of his upper right hands. Devotees of Chenrezig believe this magic gem can grant their every wish. Additionally, in his raised right hand our Chenrezig Bodhisattva statue clutches the 108 mala beads which are held in a floating position. This is a unique aspect that was requested from a former customer. As a result, we are now able to create this 14″ Chenrezig statue with the floating mala according to your Buddhist tradition.
The floating mala is considered by some to be the central piece of the statue. This is because Avalokiteshvara (Tibetan Chenrezig) is constantly reciting his mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum“. Furthermore, in his raised left hand he holds the lotus blossom. Chenrezig is also known as Padmapani or “lotus-bearer”.
Masterpiece 14″ Chenrezig Statue with Floating Mala
The artisan created the statue using the traditional lost wax sculpting method. As a result, the buyer can rest assured that they have purchased a monastic quality statue which will last many lifetimes. A 24K gold finish is the standard using the fire gilding method. Therefore, the statue will remain tarnish free indefinitely.
In addition, the lifelike glow of real gold will inspire all those who lay eyes on it. In further benefit, the finish stands out because of the low luster, rich golden hue. The face is hand painted in real gold. Click here to learn more about the Chenrezig Bodhisattva.
