Copper, as a medium of sculpture, is a quintessentially Nepalese-Buddhist thing. It is a finer medium in comparison to brass, which explains why it often comes with gilding and superior paintwork. The seated Buddha murti that you see on this page is a fine example of copper.
Handpicked for its particular finesse, such a murti would be a tasteful addition to your home or office space. The silhouette of the Buddha’s form betrays a superior aesthetic. Colloidal blue curls give the predominantly monotone composition a colour-block. A perfectly serene brow.
The most striking aspect of this copper seated Buddha, however, is the riot of lotus petals beneath Him. The sheer profusion of petals of the sacred flower are symbolic of the sahasrara, the most superior, chakra (nerve plexus) of the human anatomy.
