Description
 
A rare green nephrite jade Milarepa seated within a rocky outcrop or cave. This is a hand carved one off piece that you will not find in any other store. Stone statues of Tibetan deities and lineage gurus are particularly hard to source. The jade material was discovered in Canada and then shipped to Thailand where it was carved by hand. It is carved from the same material as the world famous 9ft Jade Buddha for Universal Peace.

Milarepa was famous for his spontaneous songs of realisation. During his 12 years of strict retreat he subsisted on nettle tea which led to his skin turning green, hence the green colour he is often depicted as having in paintings and sculpture.

height approx 5 inches
Width approx 4 inches
Weight 709 grams
