    Description

    This amazing sculpture was hand carved from the trunk and root system of a tree.  There are two Buddhas carved into the tree, the Buddha in the upper section of the tree is seated on a lotus with his right leg tucked under his body and his left leg extended downward.  His gossamer robes lie naturally over his body and cover his legs.  His hands are in the dharmachakra mudra or the wheel of dharma gesture and he has long, smooth and delicate fingers.  His eyes are closed and his face is frozen in concentration.  He looks to be in a deep meditative state.  The natural wood veins of the tree show up beautifully on the robes of the Buddha, he looks to be wearing a kaleidoscope colored robe of green, brown and white.

    The second Buddha carved below is laying in a relaxed position with both his hands held out supporting his body.  He wears full winter robes.  Each delicate wrinkle of the robes is captured in the carving.  His contemplative face is delicate and peaceful.

    The back of the sculpture is carved with a vine of plants and leaves which cover the entire back and end at the top of the sculpture.

    Only master artisans are entrusted to carve tree sculptures because they must use the natural curves and contours of the tree to create there vision.  One very special aspect of this carving are the branches that come out naturally from the base.  Three of the them are smooth while the fourth is carved with a leaf design.  The artist chose this tree because of the uniqueness of the tree's structure.

    This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the artists of Bali, Indonesia.

    About Buddha

    Care

    "The use of a wood polish will keep the wood looking fresh and the colors vibrant."

    Wood statues are easy to take care of as they just need some annual upkeep to keep them looking as they did when they were first carved.  All the wood used by Lotus Sculpure's artists is dried out for months.  Moisture causes cracks in the sculpture as the wood contracts and expands in different temperatures.  Our wood has little to no moisture in it assuring that the sculpture is not going to crack in its journey into different climates.  Here are some simple tips to keep your statue in good condition:

    • Dust the statue as needed to prevent dirt build up
    • To make the statue shine use a natural wood cleaner and a cotton cloth to buff the sculpture
    We prefer Old English to polish and buff our statues.  The use of a wood polish like Old English will keep the wood looking fresh and keep the colors looking vibrant.  For natural wood and painted wooden statues we recommend Old English for lighter woods.  For darker wood statues we recommend Old English for darker woods.  Lotus Sculpture cleans and polishes each  wooden statue prior to shipping them to the customer.

    We recommend keeping wooden statues in an indoor environment.  Wood statues can go outside however, they will wear more quickly and develop an antique appearance.  If you would like to put a wood statue from Lotus Sculpture outside and keep the same appearance of the sculpture we would recommend first coating the statue with a couple of layers of sealant or polyurethane.  We would then recommend placing the statue in a partially covered area.  The more exposure to the elements the more the statue will wear over time.   Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions regarding your wooden statue from Lotus Sculpture, (760) 994-4455 or info@lotussculpture.com.
