This is a fully gilded 8-inch statue from Nepal. The face is hand painted with 24-karat gold. Everything about it exudes richness; from the craftsmanship to the gold leaf. You can’t help but stare with wonder at this work of art that seems to transcend an inanimate object.
Buddha sits in the lotus position with his right hand in the Touching the Earth Mudra, witnessing his resistance of the forces of Mara, the supreme god of the world (Samara), who had tried to distract him from his meditation.
