Product Description

Here you can see finest statue of Padmasambhava (“Lotus-Born”), also known as Guru Rinpoche.

Padmasambhava what literally means “Lotus-Born”), also known as Guru Rinpoche, was an 8th-century Buddhist master. His origination is still not clear. Some legends say he was from India, but some points on other country (probably one of Arabian). Although there was a historical Padmasambhava, nothing is known of him apart from helping the construction of the first Buddhist monastery in Tibet at Samye, at the behest of Tibetan king Trisong Detsen, and shortly thereafter leaving Tibet due to court intrigues. A number of legends have grown around Padmasambhava’s life and deeds, and he is widely considered as a “second Buddha” in Tibetan branch of buddhism.

All the details of this statue — such as the hands, face, etc — are made very carefully and in the details. Each statue has some space inside to be filled by traditional substances.

Important remark on color perception!!!

Dear buyers, to avoid any inconvenience you need to understand this information about color perception.

Color perception depends on the light conditions. All the pictures in our shop were taken under three professional light spots with color temperature 5100-5500K. It doesn't mean we publish not realistic pictures. It means the powerful source of light can penetrate through upper film of black patina, and the color appear more "milk chocolate" than "dark chocolate".
But, as one our buyer noticed, under average room conditions it will rather look as "dark chocolate".
To make this fact more clear we took two pictures without professional sources of light. Please feel the difference between these two pictures: one was taken on open sunshine light with color temperature 5050K. Another shoot was made in the room with electric light, what color temperature is 3050K.
Here is a question: what is more realistic?
