Details

The peaceful face of Buddha is captured in brass, handcrafted in this stunning sculpture from India. Subrata Pandey presents the sculpture, created by local members of Dhokra Damar tribes. They diligently add elegant patterns to Buddha's surface, and give it an antiqued finish.

Please note: The ancient technique used to make these pieces results in an appealingly imperfect "antiqued" finish. Therefore, small variations in the surface details and patina should be expected.

The art of lost wax casting is an ancient one in India. Typical themes include Hindu gods and goddesses, bowls, figures of people riding elephants or horses, musicians, and other figures of people, animals, and birds. First, a clay core that is slightly smaller than the final sculpture size is created. A detailed wax model is formed around the core, of the same thickness intended for the final sculpture. The wax model is then coated with a fine layer of clay. Additional layers of clay are subsequently added, and the mold must then dry for 3-4 days. The mold is then heated so that the wax melts away, leaving a cavity for the forming of the sculpture. Finally, molten metal is poured into the mold and left to cool. Once unmolded, any remaining clay residue is removed.
