    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 small Gandhara style Buddha statue is seated with both hands raised in the vitarka mudra or teaching hand position. His face has a Ghandaran style as the hair is flowing with the uppermost part perched up in a bun.  He has a circular urna between his eyebrows a symbol of his ability to see the true nature of reality.  His gossamer robes outline his entire body and ripple like waves as they trace their way down his contours.  They appear to be made of the finest silk rather than brass.

    Exporting Buddhas from Thailand: 
    As a Thai customs formality, Buddha sculptures are restricted to be exported out of the country.  The original law was established to protect Thailand's ancient religious artifacts and antique Buddha images from being stolen and sold illegally.  Until recently, this law was not actively enforced on newly made Buddha statues. In 2010, Lotus Sculpture experienced containers being confiscated en route to the USA, thus making importing increasingly difficult and costly.  This may lead to an end of importing Thai Buddhist images altogether, which would be a tragedy to all involved; our customers; our business; and especially for the artists who rely on selling Buddhist art to earn a living.  It is our view that we are promoting the export of a beautiful art and supplying images for personal religious practice, rather than causing any harm to Thailand or Buddhism. 

    About Buddha

    Care

    Brass statues from Thailand 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."

    You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.  If you are really interested in making the statue shine you can use some natural oil, like coconut oil or olive oil, and a cotton rag to wipe down the metal portions of the piece.  You can use a toothbrush as well to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

    Thai brass's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The metal can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  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. 

    If you have any questions concerning your brass statue please email us at [email protected] or call us at 1(760) 994-4455.
