Description

NOTE: STATUE AND OFFERING BOWL NOT INCLUDED.

This hand chiseled wooden throne is not just any ordinary wooden throne but it is a symbolic and detailed structure that holds great meaning. The artist used radiant colours that blend on the perfectly smooth surface, producing a noble, vibrant piece.

On the top, center part of the arch you will find what is called the precious jewel or wish-granting gem, these are terms applied to the Buddhas and their teachings.

Below the jewel you will find a painted lotus flower. The lotus flower (padma) which grows from the dark watery mire but remains completely unstained by it, is a major Buddhist symbol of renunciation, purity and freedom from the faults of cyclic existence.

The base of the throne where the statue would rest is decorated with a double vajra symbolizing the balance of the four elements and harmony of the four directions.

In the front of base of the throne you will see two snow lions. The snow lion is the protector of Buddha and in paintings and sculpture they are usually seen holding up the Buddha's throne (one on the left and one on the right of the throne as seen here.) There is also a horizontal vajra located between the two snow lions.

The back plate of the throne is removable for transport.

Details abound this colorful piece which was hand crafted by the very talented artists of the beautiful Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal!
