These contemporary masterpiece statues (Tib. "rupas"), are amongst the very best created in the 20th century.

One-of-a-kind-- and totally handmade-- using the cire purdue (lost-wax) method of casting perfected by Newari artisans over the last two millenniums, they are fashioned of pure copper and have a beautiful rich antique finish.

This quality of statue, reflecting an inner intensity and innate beauty, is very difficult to obtain in the Himalayas or elsewhere. We only find a handful of pieces of this caliber each year.
