Description The artist, Balan, wanted to develop a series of smaller Moai statues fit for the sizes of children.  They were inspired by his adorable daughter, Aditaya who is pictured next to the statues.  The 3 statues were meant to cover happiness, thought and sadness.  Each statue was carved with the smooth lines of the sculpture then manually polished with a polishing stone giving the stone a beautiful shine.  In the set there are 3 statues; a smiling pink granite Moai, a thinking black granite Moai and a frowning pink granite Moai.  The 3 Moai statues can be purchased separately or as a full set. 

About Pink Granite:  Pink granite is seldom used in sculpture in south India.  Lotus Sculpture has acquired pink granite stone solely for a limited number of statues.  The Lingam's smooth surfaces really show off the beauty of the stone.  Like Indian black granite it is possible to see 4-5 different colors on a single piece depending on the degree of polish or roughness of the stone.  The stone is extremely hard and durable and can be left outside in extreme heat and extreme cold for years without care.
