Buddha-head | patinated

The Buddha heads were made by the Newar, a people from the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal. They are masters in casting bronze and hammering copper, gold or silver plate. As early as the eighth century in Tibetan chronicles, the Newars are referred to as the 'kings of bronze'.

Inspired by the life-size Buddha mask from the renowned 'Golden Temple' in Patan, a charming medieval city in Nepal, this exquisite Buddha head is handcrafted by skilled Newar artisans. Used only once every five years during a special festival, the original mask serves as a powerful symbol of spiritual reverence.

Measuring 14 cm in height, this remarkable piece is crafted from patinated brass and features an opening at the back, allowing for effortless attachment to a wall with a hook.

As masters of bronze casting and the art of hammering copper, gold, or silver plate, the Newar people of Nepal's Kathmandu Valley have been recognized for their exceptional craftsmanship since the eighth century. Their expertise shines through in this stunning Buddha head, paying homage to their centuries-old artistic legacy.
