Making a Statue

Statue making is considered as an ancient skill in in Tibetan artistic traditions with the production of these high quality art objects. For the records of Tibetan Statues Making can be traced back to as far as the 1st century BCE. Since then, skilled Tibetan metalworkers have produced good quality statues and also a wide range of domestic ware and stylish jewellery that have been flourished for centuries all across Central Asia.

In Tibet itself, normally these masters worked with several artists to create the finest traditionally crafted Tibetan statues available today. Statues can be in many different size, from tsa tsa (those several inches high) all the way to a few building height, these images assembled using hand beaten copper plates.

A simple 14-foot statue would required more than a year of work. It takes more than ten years to train a good metal sculptor. The training will begin with drawing the statues, later working with metal and around 5 to 6 years of training, he will have mastered the skills as a metal sculpture, while assisting the guru and seniors in their work, he will begin learning the actual proportions and features of the different deities and will only be able to try and produce his own statues after another 5 to 6 years or tough training before he is allowed to work on larger statues.
