Golden Buddha Statues
The Buddha, one of the most revered religious as well as spiritual leaders in the history of mankind, has been represented in many artistic forms like statues and paintings. These representations of the Buddha not only depict the awakened one in his physical form, but they also symbolize the teachings of the Buddha himself. One of these iconographic representations of the Buddha is Golden Buddha statue. The history of these golden Buddhas remains uncertain as no one knows when the first golden Buddha appeared. One of the most famous golden Buddha statues is the one which is said to have been crafted in Sukothai era of Thai history. The Sukothai style of art is considered to be influenced heavily from the Indian metal figures of the Buddha. That is why this particular Golden Buddha is believed to have made in India used to be taken to various countries for installation. This suggests that this particular Golden Buddha statue may have been cast in parts in India.
According to the craftsman and sculptors, most of the Buddha statues are firstly carved out with the main raw material such as wood, metal, plaster, etc. Then the carved statue is later gold-plated so as to make it look like the statue had been made of gold. That is why many Buddha statues sculptors in the old times first carved the wooden Buddha statues and then gold-plated them to make golden Buddha statues. The gold Buddha statue, as it is known otherwise, therefore, is taken as an object of great importance not only in terms of religion and spiritual guidance but also in terms of the monetary as well as financial terms. That is why golden Buddha statue, like the one in the photograph are rare and can only be openly found in Buddhist monasteries and temples.
