Our Nepali master artisan created this beautiful Medicine Buddha statue with the jewelry and crown of a bodhisattva. The artisan also embedded the crown and jewels with turquoise colored stones. The color turquoise is a special combination of blue and green. Blue signifies the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes their readiness to act. This Medicine Buddha wears the color well and will inspire all those who lay their eyes on the statue.
