    Wonderful Experience - 1.29.2015

    I'm very happy with the service I've received, fast, easy, wonderful. I never thought, that I'd actually bought a statue on line. The page is very easy and well done, that it convinced me to buy the statue online. I also liked the fact that there are videos of some statues which is very helpful. I'm anxious to see my statue, I'm out of the country and I'll see it in a couple of days, for the meantime thanks a lot! Best regards Claudia Romo

    Lotus Sculpture adds to the beauty of life! - 1.22.2015

    Lotus Sculpture has the most beautiful statues in the world. There is definitely a chemistry between the statues, the team at Lotus Sculpture and the purchaser. Receiving our Umbrella Ganesh was memorable. Our dream of having this statue was fulfilled. Kyle offered such a great price for it. A truly beautiful piece by the amazingly talented artists of India, who sculpted him. It's a labor of love. I am convinced that Kyle Tortora was divinely chosen to spread the love that each statue brings to its owners. We named Umbrella Ganesh Mr. G. after our station weatherman. Lord Ganesh will keep an eye on the weather for all of us! Thanks Lotus Sculpture! You add to the beauty of life! Steven Olsen and Jenny Wolkowicki New Jersey

    My daughter loved her Buddha, best Christmas gift! - 12.26.2014

    I bought the garden Buddha for my daughter for Christmas. It is a beautiful sculpture. The entire process of ordering from the web site, which was a great web site, and receiving the sculptures in plenty of time for Christmas morning was perfect. It was truly a great gift to give her and she absolutely loved it. Forget the newest technology, a serene and beautiful sculpture is a wonderful way to gift someone you love.

    Description

    Patanjali is meditating with his hands clasp together.  His only clothing is a loin cloth and mala beads around his neck.  His skin is hand polished to produce a darker shade.  The two shades of Patanajali's skin and the light gray of the snakes contrast beautifully breathing depth and perspective into the sculpture.   Patanajli is seated in the padmasana or meditative pose on the coils of serpent.   There is a small OM sign carved in the base of the sculpture.  It is hard not to feel a sense of peace and tranquility from being around Patanjali.  He expression and pose is one of pure serenity.

    This Patanajali statue was hand carved by the stone sculptor, Murugan.  He is a magnificent carver of snakes as you can tell by the incredible detail of the 5 headed hooded serpent sheltering Patanjali. Every scale of the snake is carved with perfect detail.  The entire sculpture is so realistic you may be scared to approach the figure of Patanajali in fear of the snakes.   The sculpture is a masterwork!

    About Black Granite:  Indian black granite is a wonderful stone. It is capable of a variety of finishes which can give it a variety of different color possibilities. It is possible to see 4-5 different colors on a single piece depending on the degree of polish or roughness of the stone. Indian black granite is among the best granite in the world sought after by artists globally. Unlike inferior quality granite, Indian granite is extremely dense and without impurities that plague other stones. The density of granite makes a granite sculpture perfect for any garden because it can be left outside in extreme heat and extreme cold for years without care.

    About Patanjali

    Often called "the father of yoga", Patanjali was the sage who codified his thoughts and knowledge of yoga in The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.  In this work, Patanjali compiled 195 sutras or concise aphorisms that are essentially an ethical blueprint for living a moral life and incorporating the science of yoga into your life. Although no one is sure of the exact time when Patanjali lived and wrote down his sutras, it is estimated this humble physician who became one of the world's greatest sages roamed India somewhere between 200 B.C. and 200 A.D.

    Pantanjali's life story is somewhat unknown, leaving many details unexplained and disputed.  Pantanjali was born to Atri and Anusuya; both masters of Ashtanga yoga.  The details surrounding his birth have assumed mythical  dimensions.  It is said that in order to teach yoga, Pantanjali fell from the heavens in the form of a little snake, and fell into his virginal mother's open palms. Patanjali is regarded as an incarnation of the thousand-headed serpent-king named Remainder (Shesha) or Endless (Ananta), whose coils are said to support the god Vishnu.  His most known accomplishment is the compilation of the Yoga Sutras, a major work which contains aphorisms on the philosophical aspects of mind and consciousness, and is the assumed writer of work on the ancient Indian medicine system.   Recently Yoga Sutra has become popular worldwide for the precepts of Raja Yoga, and also the philosophical basis of the Yoga movement, which aids in the health of harmonizing of the body mind.

    Pantanjali is worshiped by the dancers of India as their patron saint.  However, Pantanjali's reputation as a great dancer is doubted by scholars who know him as the author of the famous Yoga Sutras.

    Care

    Granite statues from India do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

    "You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically
    go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.
    "

    Soap and warm water is the best way to maintain the statue.  You can use a small brush to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

    Granite's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The stone can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture at least once a year so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture.  This will maintain the sculpture for your grandchildren and then their grandchildren!
