A full gold-plated copper Green Tara  statue from Patan is a remarkable piece of Buddhist art and craftsmanship. It is a testament to the artistic mastery, devotion, and cultural heritage that continues to thrive in the region. It serves as object of devotion, aid to meditation, and reminder of the qualities and teaching represented by the depicted deity.

Patan, located in Nepal, is renowned for its rich heritage of metal casting and traditional sculpting techniques.
The artisans from Patan who specialize in this technique have inherited their skills from previous generations, ensuring a high level of expertise and attention to detail. The statue is then meticulously hand-finished and polished to bring out the finest details of Green Tara's features, attire, and symbolic attributes.

The lost wax method, also known as the cire-perdue technique, is an ancient process used to create intricate metal sculptures. It involves creating a wax model of the desired statue, covering it with layers of clay, and then heating it to melt the wax and harden the clay mold. Molten metal, in this case, copper, is poured into the mold, replacing the melted wax. Once the metal solidifies, the outer clay layer is broken, revealing the newly cast statue.
Gold plating involves the application of a layer of gold onto the copper statue's surface. This process not only adds an aesthetic value but also symbolizes the precious and enlightened nature of the deity being depicted.
