This beautiful Buddhist statue is made in Takaoka, the largest traditional copperware and ironware production area in Japan, and famous for its Buddhist statues, altars, and other crafts. Each statue is made using high pressure die casting, followed by finish work done by a skilled craftsman. It is made to look like an antique, and will add a touch of classic Japanese iconography for any Buddhist or anyone interested in Asian art.
The statue is of Manjushri Bodhisattva, associated with prajñā (insight) in Mahāyāna Buddhism. Scholars have identified Manjushri as the oldest and most significant bodhisattva in Mahāyāna literature, first referred to in early Mahāyāna sūtras such as the Prajñāpāramitā sutras, and through this association, he came to symbolize the embodiment of transcendent wisdom very early in the tradition.
