Product Description

This is quite rare image of Buddha Samantabhadra "Kuntu Zangpo" or "Kunzang" a major teacher in Dzogchen system of Tibetan Buddhism.

Buddha Samantabhadra (Tib.: ཀུན་ཏུ་བཟང་པོ།; Wylie: kun tu bzang po), in the Dzogchen system, represents our true nature, that state of the Ground, is given the name the "Primordial Buddha".

He is depicted as a buddha, sky-blue in colour, sitting in the vast expanse of space, and encircled by an aura of rainbow light. He is completely naked, meaning unstained by any trace of concept. His name, Kuntuzangpo in Tibetan, Samantabhadra in Sanskrit, means "always good", "always well" or "unchanging goodness". What this signifies is that unchanging goodness, or fundamental goodness, is our ultimate nature.

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?
