The master artisan created our Nepali Dolma statue with a beautiful crystal body and embedded semi-precious stones. Additionally, the artisan carved the statue using the traditional lost wax sculpting method and finished it with pure 24K gold. The statue also features the crown and earrings of a Bodhisattva. At the request of the buyer, we would be happy to adorn the crown and earrings with turquoise and red coral stones. Please be sure to make the request before the statue is shipped. If so, we will include the decorations at no extra charge.
The color turquoise is a special combination of blue and green. Indeed, blue signifies the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes her readiness to act.
Nepali Dolma Statue Features
Our Dolma statue sits majestically in open pose on her single lotus pedestal. The classic pose is half in meditative contemplation to reflect her deep understanding of the emptiness phenomenon. However, the other leg is partly extended. This is because she is always ready to spring to the assistance of sentient life. The color green is representative of the Spring Equinox and quick action. Indeed, Dolma is always encouraging devotees to break free of dogmatism and accept new forms of knowledge.
The two lotus flowers growing over her shoulders are blossoming to entice devotees to reach for the rewards of Nirvana. Additionally, she holds the stems of the flowers gently between the thumb and index finger of each hand.
Her left hand is depicting the Abhaya “Protection” mudra to encourage devotees to be fearless in pursuing their Dharma practice. Dolma’s right hand is resting on her right knee depicting the Varada “gift giving” mudra. As a result, it reflects the generous nature of Dolma as she is always ready to come to the assistance of sentient life. Click here to learn more about the rich symbolism of Dolma statues.
