Our Nepali master artisan created this Vajrasattva sculpture with the jewelry and crown of a bodhisattva. At the request of the buyer, we would be happy to adorn the crown and jewels of the statue with turquoise or red stones. Indeed, turquoise is a color of special significance in Buddhism. Additionally, meditation on the color red will help devotees eliminate attachment and greed. This Vajrasattva sculpture will wear the adornments well and bring inspiration to the new owner.
Vajrasattva Sculpture Features
Each Nepali statue was hand crafted using the traditional lost wax method. Additionally, the statue is hand face painted which brings life like expression to the statue. Furthermore, this beautiful sculpture is depicted with the Vajra in his right hand and the Ghanta bell in his left hand. These are very significant Buddhist symbols. The Ghanta is the symbol for the feminine attribute of wisdom. Also, the vajra is the symbol for the masculine attribute of compassion. The combination of these two attributes has been described as the state of Nirvana.
Furthermore, Vajrasattva is wearing the intricately carved crown and jewels of the bodhisattva. Additional important features include the 3 neck lines, ushnisha topknot and the third eye of wisdom. This sculpture portrays Vajrasattva sitting in the full lotus pose on top of a double lotus pedestal. Click here to learn more about Vajrasattva.
