Hand Painted genuine piece of thangka art from Nepal of Shakyamuni Buddha. 24k gold is use in this painting with detail work on each 108 Buddha on background. This is a masterpiece art by Himalayas artisan.
Buddha Shakyamuni was born Siddhartha Gautama, the only son of king from Nepal. At the age of 29, he renounced the luxury of his royal heritage to take up the life of a religious wanderer. At the age of 35, after gaining profound insight into the true nature of reality (Dharma), he attained complete enlightenment. In this image Buddha is depicted on earth touching Mudra which recalls the moment of Buddha enlightenment day when he touches the earth to witness his profound realization.
