Dressed in a
queenly brocaded dhoti with ethnic patterns, ornamented by jewelry chosen from features
of traditional Nepalese statues, Green Tara here is a vision of the Buddhist ideal
of divine maternal virtues. Mirroring the suppleness of Tara’s physique, the
flowers and scarf in the statue curve and flow on her side, instilling the
composition with scenic beauty. The inverted lotus throne on which Green Tara
is placed has been meticulously designed, with the footrest for the goddess,
who is swift and compassionate in her action.
Nepalese Copper sculptures – Their Care and maintenance
Nepalese sculptures are well-known throughout the globe for their distinctive features. The artists of Nepal specialize in making small religious figures, especially Buddhist and Hindu, and ritual objects in copper or bronze alloy. The characteristic features of sculptures of Nepal are elongated and languid eyes, exaggerated physical postures, round facial features, and sensuous youthful bodies. All these features exhibit a high level of skill and exquisite beauty that draw their influence from the artistic style of the Gupta and Pala Empires from ancient India. Nepali sculptures are especially appreciated for perfectly portraying the spiritual cultures of Buddhism and Hinduism.
Maintenance of copper statues
The ancient artists of Nepal preferred to use copper more than any other material due to its amazing properties. It is a soft and malleable metal that makes it suitable for molding into any desired shape or form. A sculpture requires a structure with realistic intricate details and copper is an appropriate material for this purpose. Although copper sculptures do not need much care and maintenance, you should not question the need of cleaning them carefully.
