Shaman prayer statue
Shaman prayer statue
This is an antique iron statue of a Shaman folk prayer figure from Nepal, located in Namaste. It depicts a male figure in a squatting position, with an elongated head and body, and short, bent legs. The arms are spread outwards. The surface of the statue shows a partially dark and crusty patina, which is a result of its long-term ritual use and age. These sculptures are created by the Khami cast of blacksmiths and are typically offered as a fulfillment of a vow to the main Mastra shrine.
Please note that these are unique, handmade products and that they may vary in size, shape, and color. Certain products of "The Silk Road Collection" are several decades old and may show signs of use.

About the philiosophy
Their philosophy merges perfectly with our wabi-sabi
philiosophy. Many of their objects bear the marks of time, but their
attractiveness seems to grow with any additional imperfection. weathered
surfaces, traces of paint, smoothed edges through repeated usage, uneven
patinas, handmade objects,… And all these time-made imperfections add to the
overall charm of an object. A lot of products comes from Asia. Asia is a source
of countless rich cultures and traditions. They combine old with new, soberness
with colour, details with simplicity, and East with West.
