copper statue of Padmasambhava shows the Buddhist master in a powerful Tantric manifestation,
with awesome expressions and a third eye. He is surrounded by raging fires representing
enlightened wisdom, separating him from the worldliness around him. Gilded masterfully,
Padmasambhava is attired in traditional Nepalese robes, which are meticulously painted
to present vibrant ethnic patterns. In his hands, Padmasambhava holds a Vajra,
a pot of ambrosia, and staff with heads depicting various stages of life. In a
dynamic posture, Padmasambhava challenges and dispels negativity from the lives
of his followers.
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.
