    Outstanding personal attention and amazing pieces - 4.7.2015

    Even though my purchase was a modest 11 inch statue Kyle took the time to let my girlfriend and I look around his amazing warehouse and patiently answered our numerous questions. He has some absolutely stunning pieces and it was a real pleasure to be able to admire them all without feeling rushed. When the day comes that I am ready to add another piece to my collection I will definitely make Lotus Sculpture my first stop.

    Brings beauty and peace to my garden. Totally Zen. - 4.5.2015

    Just sitting and looking at this beautiful Buddha statue brings a feeling of calm and peace, not only to me and my husband but this sentiment has been relayed to us by all friends and relatives who came to see the lovely zen Buddha statue. This is a second Buddha statue we have purchased from the lotus sculptures, and they both are breathintakingly beautiful. Thank you Kyle

    Bronze Krishna on Cow Statue, 24" - 3.25.2015

    I bought a unique, one-of-a-kind statue from Lotus Sculpture which depict Krishna sitting sideways on a cow and playing his flute, while the cow has twisted her neck around so she can gaze up at him with loving eyes. It depicts a very touching moment. The cow's posture shows such love and devotion. I've never seen anything like it. The artistic balance between Krishna and the cow is wonderful, and Krishna is very well done, with a slight smile on his face as he plays his flute. It's the most remarkable statue of Krishna I've ever seen. In addition, the shipment was extremely prompt and a proper statement of value accompanied the statue. This has been a very good experience with Lotus Sculpture. --Maris Whitaker

    Bought one last week, bought a second today - 3.24.2015

    Purchased a 19" painted Ganesha. It arrived last week and it is better than expected. It was very well packed. The colors are vibrant and the hues are perfect. I was afraid they might be garish in hand, but those fears were completely unfounded. Beautiful color palette. The carving is well detailed. It is a very handsome piece. I couldn't be happier with it In fact, I was so happy that I just finished purchasing a 36" painted Garuda. Once I saw the quality of the Ganesh I felt confident in purchasing a more expensive piece. And eagerly awaiting its arrival. Had I the money and the room, I would be in trouble.

    Description

    Madurai Veeren is often seen in temples in Tamil Nadu.  His mustached face is firm and dignified.  His right arm is raised holding a sword and his left arm is relaxed holding a club.

    Village Deities:  Different village deities are found in the different districts.  Sudalai Madan is worshiped in Tirunelveli district. Madurai Veeren is found in Madurai and Tiruchi districts.   On an average,  eight percent of the Hindu population worship village gods daily and fourteen percent occasionally. Twenty-six percent of the Hindu population of Thanjavur district worship village gods daily.  In Madurai district, about twenty percent.  This percentage is high because of the popularity of Madurai Veeren.

    Lost Wax Method:  This sculpture is a one of a kind, lost wax method bronze statue hand made by the artists of South India.  The sculpture pictured is the only sculpture Lotus Sculpture has like this in our store.  When you order this piece you will receive this exact sculpture.  It is truly one of a kind as there is only one made exactly like this!  Each bronze is hand made by a group of bronze artists whose families have been crafting bronze sculptures for centuries with the art being passed on by each generation.  The hand crafted bronzes statues have an incredible amount of detail which many other mass produced, brass Hindu statues lack.  Lost Wax South Indian bronze statues are the only sculptures used by Hindu temples throughout India and the world.  Click here to learn more about the Lost Wax Method.

    About the Golden Polish:  This bronze sculpture has been polished after casting giving it a golden shine.  Polished bronze murtis are often used in temples.  Temples prefer the polished bronze because the rituals involved in puja often involve bathing the bronze deity, abisheka, which naturally removes the bronze patina of an older piece.  Over time and with no periodic care the golden polish will naturally dull to form a dark patina that is naturally found on aged bronze.

    Care

    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 of India and 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 South Indian 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 both polished golden bronzes and antique patina 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.

    Many of our bronze Hindu statues have been placed in outdoor temples.  Bronze's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture every couple of months so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture and then use a cotton cloth with some natural oil to give the statue a shine.  Both indoors and outdoors a bronze statue can be left alone which, overtime, will give the bronze an antique patina.

    On some bronze statues you can see small hints of lime green, verde-gris patina.  Some people prize this color for its age others want to remove it.  If you would like to remove the verde-gris use a tooth brush with some coconut oil or other natural oil and lightly go over the verde-gris.  This should remove the unwanted patina from the sculpture.
