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 Samantabhadra Bodhisattva, associated with practice and meditation in Mahayana Buddhism, and known as Fugen in Japan. Fugen is often venerated in Tendai and Shingon Buddhism, and as the protector of the Lotus Sutra in Nichiren Buddhism.
