The statues made following the polychrome process are surprisingly lightweight because of the unique way they are made. They are hand carved from wood before being treated with the top layers, which gives them their smooth finish. The works of art are first carved out of wood in the workshops after which they are covered in plaster and then painted, and in some cases gilded or treated with a fine patina. This process lends a wonderful lightweight feel and yet luxuriously soft finish to the product. The muted colors, an uncluttered style, and the soothing attitude of the teaching Buddha make it the perfect item for any home or office decor.

The teaching Buddha is known as the Dharma Chakra Buddha, and is in a sitting or standing position. You do not need to be a Buddhist to incorporate Buddha in your home. The teaching Buddha is the perfect choice for the northeast section, which represents education, of your home or office.
