Partly Gold Plated Manjushri Statue 9 inch
A very beautifully gold plated Copper Manjushri statue standing at 9 inches tall is made by the fourth generation artist using meticulous statue making technique including lost wax, hand carving and hand polishing.
According to Swayambhu Purana, the Kathmandu Valley was once a lake. It is believed that Manjushri saw a lotus flower in the center of the lake and cut a gorge at Chovar to allow the lake to drain. The place where the lotus flower settled became Swayambhunath Stupa and the valley thus became habitable.
