Gilt Copper Buddha figure contemporary
This statue was purchased from a very well respected workshop in Patan, Nepal, where statue making has been done for centuries.

The contrasting brown and gold is achieved by gilding only portions of the statue and leaving other parts ungilded copper. The face is painted with “cold gold” and the lips, eyes, and hair are painted with pigments, as is traditional with Buddhist statues.

The statue is 8.5 inches high and 5.5 inches wide at the base. Its weight of almost four pounds gives it a very substantial feel.
