Red Amitabha Buddha Statue Features:
Our Nepali master artisan created our beautiful red Amitabha Buddha statue with the jewelry and crown of a bodhisattva. At the request of the buyer, we would be happy to adorn the crown and jewels of the statue with turquoise and red stones. The color turquoise is a special combination of blue and green. Indeed, blue signifies the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes their readiness to act. Additionally, devotees meditating on the color red can transform the delusion of attachment into the wisdom of discernment. The color red is the special color of Amitabha and it is often worn by other deities to pay tribute.
