The company is still in business! This beautiful oval porcelain plaque features a stunning and lifelike Renaissance-style hand-painted portrait of the Madonna and child. The portrait is intricately and expertly painted and executed and depicts a serene Madonna gazing lovingly at her sacred child. The porcelain plaque is marked on the back “KPM” and features the scepter mark. The plaque is mounted in a giltwood ornate oval frame with coordinating gilt velvet matting. Plaque presents beautifully and is in excellent antique condition, with very minimal display wear and no chips or cracks.

Fine Quality 13 Namgyalma / Namgyal Buddha Statue Partially Gold Gilded Copper Alloy with Gold Painted Face. Namgyalma The Crowned Mother Buddha. Namgyalma the victorious hair or crowned mother Buddha. Namgyalma is a female bodhisattva with three faces and eight arms and one of the three reverend deities of longevity. Her middle face and eight arms are white, symbolizing the elimination of disasters. There is an eye on each side of her forehead and a coronal is twisting around her painted on her crown. As required by the sutra of measurements for the construction of statues, this mother Buddha should be moulded as a maiden of 16 years old. Half of hair should be braided with the remaining hair hanging down and the tip being longer than her elbows. Her face should resemble sesame and her eyes red lotus petals. The yellow face on the left side symbolizes benefit and longevity and the blue face on the right side symbolizes the defeat of devils. The mother Buddha is holding a double Dorje on the one hand of her main arm and rope on the other hand. While the palm of her third hand is facing the front to gratify peoples wishes. On the left side, her first hand is holding up, while her second hand is grasping a bow and her third hand is holding an Amrita- Kalash with a flower in bloom. According to the Buddhist scriptures, the followers who practices Buddhism should regard the victorious hair Crowned Mother Buddha as a female Bodhisattva who rids of miseries and disasters. Practicing her dharma can help lengthen their span of life, increase their happiness and wisdom, eliminate their sins and shield them from evil omen. This sculpture is a beautiful depiction of Namgyal. Expertly cast from copper alloy and gilded with 24 karat gold and gold painted face, the figure sits regally upon a single lotus throne, expressing a graceful and dignified presence.

The fine metalworking techniques have been passed down from generation to generation since ancient times and over all, the stunning gold gilding gives the sculpture a luminous quality, evoking the enlightened spiritual presence of the Buddha.

15.5 Guru Rinpoche/ Guru Padmasambhava Statue Fully Gold Gilded with Fine Carving and Hand Painted Face. Guru Padmasambhava – Precious Master. Buddhism was first introduced to Tibet in the eighth century when King Trisong Detsen invited the Indian master Santaraksita to teach the sacred Dharma to the Tibetan people. When Santaraksita arrived and he and the king began to build the first monastery, resentful mountain spirits interfered and created many obstacles. Realizing that the help of a realized master with control over physical reality was needed, the king invited Guru Padmasambhava to come and tame the angry spirits of Tibet. Guru Padmasambhava, regarded as an emanation of Buddha Amitabha, was born miraculously from a lotus blossom in the land of Oddiyana located in present-day Pakistan. He was known far and wide for his miracle powers, including his ability to subdue spirits. At the request of the king, Guru Padmasambhava journeyed to Tibet and engaged the local nature spirits in magical combat. Conquering these spirits, he bound them by oath to protect the Dharma for all time. Evidence of his victories in these battles can still be seen throughout the valleys and villages of Tibet, where he is affectionately known as “Guru Padmasambhava, ” meaning Precious Master. The King, Santaraksita and Guru Padmasambhava then worked together to establish Buddhism in the country. The King founded temples and Santaraksita ordained monks, while Guru Padmasambhava worked at a more mysterious level. Guru Padmasambhava established the secret and powerful practices of Tantric Buddhism, and gave profound and extraordinary teachings to his closest disciples, including the king. In addition, foreseeing that a future king would one day try to destroy Tibetan Buddhism, Guru Padmasambhava concealed religious treasures throughout the Himalayan region. These treasures would be revealed centuries later by seers destined to receive them. Guru Padmasambhava did not die, but flew away with his consort on the rays of the sun. It is belived by many, especially those within the Nyingma school (which traces its lineage directly to Guru Padmasambhava), that he is still living, and remains full of compassion for sentient beings. Dwelling at the level of spontaneous presence, the great Guru has the power to bestow blessings instantly and grant wishes immediately. He remains to this day the deeply beloved focus of practice for many Tibetan Buddhists. Here, Guru Padmasambhava can be seen in his most well known representation. His eyes are open in a piercing gaze; his face is wrathful and smiling, blazing magnificently with mysterious power. He cradles a khatvanga in his left arm, representing his consort Mandarava, who arouses realization of emptiness. His khatvanga is crowned with three severed heads and a trident, symbolizing Guru Padmasambhava’s liberation from the three kayas of desire, form and formlessness. He wears a lotus hat ornamented with a sun and moon, representing skillful means and wisdom. His hat also has a vajra top, symbolizing his unshakable samadhi, and is crowned with a vulture feather, representing his realization of the highest view. In his right hand he holds a vajra, an implement used in Tantric ritual to symbolize the union of conventional and ultimate truth. His left hand rests in his lap in the gesture of meditation (Dhyana Mudra) and holds a skull cup containing the vase of immortality. The vase is filled with the nectar of deathless wisdom and is adorned with leaves of a sacred flowering tree. The vase further serves as a reminder of Guru Padmasambhava’s connection to Buddha Amitabha, as it is the special emblem of Amitayus (an aspect of Amitabha). This statue is a beautiful representation of the beloved Guru Rinpoche. Expertly sculpted from copper alloy and fully gilded with 24 karat gold, the statue has been finely carved with detail images of dragon and other images and has hand face painted. This sculpture was individually handcrafted in Patan, Nepal by master artisans of the Shakya clan who are considered among the best in the world. These craftsmen are the modern heirs to a centuries-old tradition of creating sacred art for use in temples and monasteries. The fine metalworking techniques have been passed down from generation to generation since ancient times. Guru Padmasambhava Statue – Fully Gold Gilded with Hand Painted Face.
