Buddha statues from Nepal
The Nepali Bronze Buddha statues are among the most detailed statues in the entire world. For months, statues are being hand carved & polished and the most beautiful carvings are being added. Often they are fire gilded with 24 carat. gold.
Real masterpieces are hard to find. The old handicraft is slowly dying. But given our family ties with Nepal, we visit the country several times a year and are still being able to search and find some of the best Buddha statues in the country.
We buy only the highest quality and always have a few hundred Buddha statues from Nepal in stock.
You are welcome to take a look at these masterpieces.
