My credit goes to the maker(s) of this film. It was uploaded to Youtube by people referring to a website of artists and Buddhist practitioners - see

Hand-made metal statues from Nepal

In my comments about the first part of this video I expressed my concern that this craft practiced for centuries by few Newari families in Patan, Nepal, is doomed to die out.
