An impressive antique figure of Dipankara, the original Buddha of the immense past. He is considered as the Buddha of Charity, the Protector of Merchant, and a form of the Adi Buddha most cherished in Nepal since the 17th century. Here in this meticulously hand-chased sacred three metals statue, of copper, gold and silver repoussé over solid bronze, Dipankara Buddha stands in tribhanga pose on a lotus base, he is a wrapped in a multi-folds accordion style flared robe, burnished with silver medallions and ribbons in gold, wearing a dhoti hand carved with floral and bird motifs, adorned with large earrings, necklaces, armbands, bracelets and anklets; his finely modelled face rendered with downcast eyes, surmounted by a seven-pointed crown inset with corals, turquoise, and a red ruby, backed by an aureole that stand out from the Buddha’s shoulders; with right hand raised in the protection gesture (abhaya mudra), and his left is in the charity gesture (varada mudra). The copper plate on the base with a hand chased viswa vajra mark appears to be resealed. Possibly originated from Newar, Nepal. This rare Dipankara Buddha statue is timeworn with abrasion but is in very good condition.
