At the request of the buyer, we would be happy to adorn the crown and jewels of the statue with turquoise and red stones. At no extra charge, the skilled artisan can embellish the statue with special decoration before delivery.
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. She wears it well and will inspire all those who lay their eyes on her statue.
Khadiravani Sculpture Features
This Khadiravani sculpture symbolizes her pure land of Mt Potala. Khadiravani is a forest goddess and she represents the color green. Tibetan Buddhists believe that the color green has great significance. Indeed, by meditating on the color green devotees can overcome jealousy and ill will towards others. Additionally, it is possible to transmute the poison of jealousy into the wisdom of accomplishment.
Khadiravani is elegantly depicted with 2 lotus flowers that blossom over her shoulders. The stems of the lotus flowers are gently held between the index finger and thumb in each hand. The lotus flower is very significant in Buddhist beliefs. This is because the lotus begins its life as a seed planted into the muddy bottom of a pond. The flower then grows through the muddy water and rises above the surface to portray a beautiful blossom.
This analogy is significant because it encourages devotees to practice diligently in order to rise above the sea of suffering. By acquiring insight wisdom devotees can rise above the defilements and worldly desires. As a result, they too will rise above the murky temptations of samsara and blossom in the pure air.
