magnificent Medicine Buddha rendered in superb artistry, with strong definition
and fine details richly gilded in gold. The statue is a heavy cast bronze in two parts, and
it weights over 11 kgs (24 lbs). The Bhaisajyaguru is seated in full lotus position, stylistically adhered to traditional proportions that evoke symmetrical sacred geometries. This classical depiction shows the Medicine Buddha is dressed in flowing traditional monk robes, his left hand holds a medicine
bowl filled with the healing elixir that transforms all ills, and in his right
hand he holds the myrobalan plant that heals all ills. The Bhaisajyaguru appears
to have a youthful facial features, with eyes downcast in a
countenance that holds a transcendental equipoise.
