Vijaya 6-inch Statue
Statue height is 6inches / 15cms
Vijaya is a female Bodhisattva of longevity. Her practice is said to protect against worldly disasters, lengthen life span, and bring happiness and wisdom.
Young and beautiful, Vijaya wears the ornaments of a dakini and possesses eight arms and three faces. Her central face is white and her demeanor peaceful, signifying that she is an antidote to sickness and injuries. Her right face is yellow and slightly wrathful, representing her as a granter of longevity, while the blue face represents that she is a protector against negative karma. In her arms she carries arrows, a Vajra, a Buddha idol, a noose, bows, and a chalice containing nectar.Our statues are created strictly following proportions as they are laid out in Buddhist scripture. The face of each statue is painted by our thangka painters with 24k gold paint, which has a matte look and reflects light similar to how skin does. The hand-beaten ornaments the deity carries are gold plated and adorned with semi-precious gems.
