During the Kalachakra Celebration in January, 2006, Tibetan Buddhist Fourteenth Dalailama, inaugurated the Acharya Nagarjuna Statue at Amaravathi, where the Kalachakra Celebrations were held on a massive scale. During my very recent visit to Amaravathi, I’ve captured a picture of this statue. As per my memory, the other notable statue of Acharya Nagarjuna can be found at Acharya Nagarjuna University, on whose name this University is established. The image of Acharya Nagarjuna is a rare one, as he is an ancient historical person, whose image would be difficult to figure out. Perhaps, the other images of him could be found at some Museums or so…

And, the statue of Acharya Nagarjuna at Acharya Nagarjuna University is in the following way…

Acharya Nagarjuna Statue, on whose name the University is established
Acharya Nagarjuna Statue, on whose name the Acharya Nagarjuna University is established

Between these two Statues, the statue at Acharya Nagarjuna University is first established, as per my knowledge. So, there could be possibility of the sculpture of the Amaravathi Statue, having a view at statue at Acharya Nagarjuna University for replica.
