In the two hands in front of her chest, our Usnisavijaya sculpture holds a double Dorje and rope. Also, with her third right hand she offers gifts to her devotees by portraying the Varada mudra. She also holds an arrow and a statue of Amitabha Buddha. In her lap, she holds the vessel of longevity in the palm of her left hand. Her other left hand holds a bow and the upper left hand depicts the Abhaya “protection” mudra. There is a third eye of wisdom between her brows and an additional eye is in the palm of her right hand.

Special Adornments of our Usnisavijaya Sculpture
Our Nepali master artisan created our beautiful Usnisavijaya 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 sculpture with turquoise and red coral stones. At no extra charge, the skilled artisan can embellish the sculpture 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. Furthermore, Usnisavijaya has close affiliation with Amitabha Buddha and wearing the color red pays tribute to him. This Usnisavijaya sculpture will wear the adornments very well and they will inspire all those who see it.
