This Megh Sambara statue was handmade using the traditional lost wax sculpting method. The intricate details of the sculpture are finely carved and the faces are hand painted giving them a truly frightening appearance. Indeed, the Nepali artisans have long been the source of the Tibetan monasteries for sculptures and ritual items. Therefore, the buyer can rest assured they have procured a monastic quality statue.
Furthermore, the artisan adorned the crowns and jewelry of the statue with turquoise and red coral stones. Turquoise is a combination of blue and green, blue symbolizes the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes their readiness to act. As a result, the colors highlight the statue features and inspire all those who see it.
Megh Sambara Statue Symbolism
Our statue portrays the wrathful embodiment of Manjushri – “Bodhisattva of Wisdom”. Megh Sambara is the “Conqueror of Death” because he has defeated the cycle of rebirth. Additionally, he defeated Yama – the “God of Death” and keeper of the hell realms. To defeat the god of death, Megh Sambara appeared with the head of a bull and eight other ferocious faces. He also has many hands holding sharp weapons and 16 legs that trample on negativity. Our Megh Sambara statue stands within the flames of pristine awareness locked in eternal embrace with his consort Vetali.
