    ganesha's mouse - 2.27.2015

    the mouse is great says my daughter in little rock Arkansas for whom it was a birthday present. 4 stars instead of 5 because it did not arrive on the 24 feb as expected but on the 26. probably due to the bad weather in Arkansas, but still it was a bit of a disappointment. but I certainly will trade with you again! thanks jane

    Best Experience - 2.20.2015

    I really appreciate Mr. Kyle Tortora for answering my every question in detail in emails and also on the phone before I bought the sculptures. I ordered a matching pair of Nataraja and Sivakami Amman bronze sculptures. I got what I expected from the photos that are shown in the web-site. I will send a photo of how I display the sculptures in my Hindu home shrine once I have completed the construction of the shrine in the next six months. Thank you so much for your wonderful services. God bless you always.

    Wonder statue and service. - 2.14.2015

    I received my statue in a timely manner and in excellent condition. It was more beautiful than the picture of it on the site and it is the perfect size for my small collection. The experience over all was wonderful as well. The statue was reasonably priced and represented exactly as it is. Thanks!

    Wonderful Aesthetic And Spiritual Treasures - 2.12.2015

    We couldn't' be more pleased with the 36" Vishnu and 10" Ganesh we ordered from Lotus Sculpture. Each piece arrived perfectly and safely packaged and what a delight to open each of these packages and see the wonders they held. These sculptures are so beautifully and artfully crafted. I know we will continue to discover more and more of the intricate details, as Vishnu's power and Ganesh's sense of humor become more and more visible. We will always cherish what these sculptures have done to enhance our new home, both aesthetically and spiritually. Thank you, Carol Younghans and Ray Hockedy

    Excellent customer service, great produce! - 2.9.2015

    I had been looking for a Ho-Tei (Chinese "Laughing Buddha") sculpture and was having very little luck. Somehow I ran across Lotus Sculpture in an internet search and found what I was looking for. The price and shipping costs were quite reasonable, and a phone message left on their customer phone line was answered same day by one of the owners. My wife loves her Ho-Tei sculpture, thanks!!

    Description

    This delightful Bangladeshi style bronze depicts 4 figures and an elephant. Two are atop and elephant, one is trying to get on the elephant's back and another attendant holding a parrot. The mahout who is steering the elephant holds and elephant goad in one hand and a spear in the other. An elephant goad is used to direct the elephant where to go. The other figure behind the mahout is reaching back to help his friend up onto the elephant. A wonderful sculpture that captures some of the color of Asia!

    Care

    Bangladeshi Bronze is an extremely durable metal made from a combination of 5 metals; copper, iron, tin, with minute additions of silver and gold.  This combination is called Panchaloha bronze and is the basis for making the sacred Hindu temple statues around the world.  Copper is the most prevalent metal in the alloy.  Copper also gives the metal a softer composition that allows the bronze artisans to carve the details that are prevalent in each piece.    All the Bangleshi bronze sculpture Lotus Sculpture carries are Panchaloham and thus suited for any home altar or community temple. 

    "If you would like the piece to shine use a cotton cloth with some coconut oil or other natural oil to wipe down the bronze statue."

    Because of the durability of the metal not much is needed to maintain a bronze sculpture.  Many of our customers purchase a bronze statue and perform daily puja and abhisheka consisting of bathing the Hindu deity in ghee, milk, coconut milk or other liquids.  In this case nothing is needed to keep the statue clean as it will be bathed daily.  If the sculpture is used for "darshan" or simply viewing the sculpture it is best to dust the statue as needed so no dirt collects in the details of the sculpture. For Bangladeshi bronze statues if you would like the sculpture to shine, use a cotton cloth with some coconut oil or other natural oil to wipe down the piece as needed. 
    If you have any questions concerning your bronze statue please email us at [email protected] or call us at 1(760) 994-4455.
