Silver Plated Oxidized Copper 13.5″ Manjushri Statue

Manjushri is one of the original Bodhisattvas and he is the embodiment of transcendent wisdom. Indeed, the concept of Buddhist wisdom exists in all our Manjushri statues. Our Manjushri statue wields the sword of wisdom and also the book of wisdom. See details below.

Manjushri was conceived from the Buddhist texts. Specifically, Prajnaparamita Sutta is a Buddhist text that first emerged in 100 B.C.E. However, this seminal text on transcendent wisdom took 7 centuries to complete. Manjushri is well represented within the Prajnaparamita Sutta. As a result, a copy of the text rests inside the lotus blossom that grows over his left shoulder.

A less subtle representation of wisdom is in Manjushri’s sword. Unfortunately, the sword has been misrepresented by some. Manjushri’s sword represents the gentle annihilation of ignorance. This is not to be mistaken for violence. The sword represents the effectiveness of wisdom to fight against ignorance, not the means. The subjugation and eradication of ignorance is to be done with surgical precision. The sword of wisdom is very effective to eliminate ignorance and all of its residue.

Manjushri represents the Buddha’s power of wisdom. As a result, Manjushri statues are commonly seen alongside the the Buddha’s protector (Vajrapani) and the Buddha’s compassion (Avalokitesvara). These 3 Buddha statues are an elaborate selection for a Buddhist altar. Indeed, they represent the important components of the foundation of Buddhism.

Manjushri sits in full lotus pose on a double lotus pedestal. The sculpture took special care to complete the lotus pedestal with intricate precision. This is where the combination of silver and the rich luster of oxidized copper compliment each other best.

World Class Sculptures

All of our Manjushri statues were hand crafted in Patan Nepal using the lost wax method. This sculpting method has been passed down from many generations of Nepali artisans. As a result, when you purchase this statue you can be assured that is was done with expert care and craftsmanship. Additionally, Tibetan monasteries have been avid buyers of the Nepali statues for many centuries. Therefore, you can rest assured you have procured a world class statue.
