Product Description

Here you can see finest statue of Medicine Buddha aka Menla ("the Healer God") or Bhaisajyaguru, small size — 10.5 cm, fine carving.

Here you can see our finest statue of Medicine Buddha. This Buddha has many different names: Menla, "the Healer God" (Tib.: སྨན་ལྷ་; Wylie: sman lha), Bhaisajyaguru or Bhaisajya-guru-vaidūrya-prabhā-rāja, what literally means “King of Medicine Master and Lapis Lazuli Light”. Menla is known as the Buddha of healing and medicine in Mahāyāna Buddhism. He commonly named as “Medicine Buddha” and described as a doctor who cures all the sufferings using the medicine of his teachings.

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?
