Our Nepali master artisan created our handmade Chenrezig statue 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 this statue with turquoise and red stones. At no extra charge, the skilled artisan can embellish the statue with these special decorations before delivery.
The color turquoise is a special combination of blue and green. Indeed, blue signifies the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes their readiness to act. Our handmade Chenrezig statue will wear it well and will inspire all those who lay their eyes on the statue.
Handmade Chenrezig Statue Features
Our handmade Chenrezig statue features 4 arms and he wears the silver plated crown and jewels of a Bodhisattva. Additionally, he holds the mala beads in his upper right hand because he is constantly reciting his mantra to ease the suffering of the world. In his upper left hand he holds the stem of the lotus flower between his index finger and thumb. In Buddhism, the lotus flower is a symbol of enlightenment. As the flower rises out of the murky water to blossom in the fresh air and sunshine, so does a devotee who has passed through the sea of suffering to become enlightened.
Chenrezig sits in double lotus pose on a single lotus pedestal. The rich and lustrous oxidized copper mixes well with the fine details of the statue. An additional attribute of the Chenrezig statue is the cintamani jewel between his pressed hands. Chenrezig’s devotees believe that the cintamani will grant them whatever they wish for.
