    A Fine and Finely Detailed Buddha - 4.14.2014

    My experience with your company's service was excellent -- the statue actually arrived a day earlier than promised. The Buddha itself looks perfectly at home in my garden, as I hoped it would. The details in the face and clothing are exceptional and the patina is just right. I love it!

    Lotus Sculpture Experience - 4.5.2014

    We had a wonderful experience purchasing a stone Buddha from Kyle. He was very responsive to our initial questions and then allowed us "quiet time" to think through what we wanted. Kyle found the best shipping price for us and our 33" garden Buddha arrived packed meticulously. It looks beautiful on top of a small waterfall over our pool. I have promised Kyle a photograph once our spring foliage is out. In addition to our purchase, we enjoyed reading about Kyle's travels and life journey on his website. Clearly, bringing these statues to our individual homes is more than just a business for him- it is like sharing something that is important to him. If we ever decide to purchase another statue it will definitely be through Lotus Sculpture. Thanks so much!

    No Obstacles - 3.15.2014

    I was looking for a Ganesha murti that would suit the entrance to the new studio I and my beloved have created in Kyoto From my initial inquiry to the day of delivery, the service from Lotus Sculpture was stellar. Kyle answered my questions promptly, gave me two shipping options, and shipped the sculpture out the day I confirmed the order. I received the statue in only 5 days. It was packed with care, and very easy to unpack. The packing Lotus Sculpture used was molded to the sculptures form, which I felt showed additional care and respect for the murti. Once Ganesha was unpacked and stood up, I took some time to examine the artistry of the statue. It is actually even more gorgeous than it appeared in the photo. In fact, my beloved, who is not as passionate about the murtis as I, also remarked that he was quite handsome! It is a true work of art and devotion. I am extremely content with this purchase. If you are in need of a quality murti from a reliable dealer who exhibits a love for the statues they sell, I believe your expectations will be exceeded by Lotus Sculpture. Namaste.

    Spectacular - 3.12.2014

    Dear Kyle, I have a bit of experience with Antique Asian Spiritual Art as my teacher, Rudi, was a dealer in it in NYC in the 60's and early 70's. Then in the 80's and 90's with Stuart Perrin also. I had a modest collection for a long time. After living in Shree Gurudev Rudrananda Yoga Ashram in Big Indian, NY in the early 1970's, there were many quality antique pieces there. Very fortunate to have been around this art, huge buddhas, great large Tibetian and Indian bronzes and Thankas, etc. I am very pleased and satisfied with the beautifully carved and finished 3' wood Ganesh recently purchased. The value was spectacular, and he makes a welcome addition to our meditation hall. Thank you Lotus Sculpture for making affordable quality pieces accessable to all. Warmly, Michele Galante, MD

    Description

    The Story behind the Sculpture:  Once Sita gave Hanuman a necklace of pearls. After a while, the residents of the city observed him breaking the necklace and inspecting each pearl minutely. Intrigued they asked him the reason. "I am looking for Rama and Sita," replied Hanuman. Laughing at his apparent naivety the spectators pointed out to him that the royal couple was at the moment seated on the imperial throne. "But Rama and Sita are everywhere, including my heart" wondered aloud the true bhakta. Not understanding the depth of his devotion, they further teased him: "So Rama and Sita live in your heart, can you show them to us?" Unhesitatingly, Hanuman stood up and with his sharp talons tore open his chest. There, within his throbbing heart, the astonished audience were taken aback to find enshrined an image of Rama and Sita. Never again did anyone make fun of Hanuman's devotion.  This Statue captures this moment perfectly.  Hanuman is standing tall and very proudly showing everyone inside of his chest.  Hanuman is renown for his faithful and steadfast service to Rama as told in the Ramayana epic in which Hanuman played an active part.  Hanumans tail is curled up into a ring on his back. What makes this really special is that it is carved two inches away from Hanumans back, separate from the body of Hanuman. 

    The painting scheme is adopted from the bright colors used in south Indian temples.  The temples are known for their large gopurams or towers that rise up into the sky decorated with various gods and goddesses.  The gopurams are painted in vibrant colors which mirror the vibrant life of south India.

    About Hanuman

    Hanuman is one of the most important personalities in the epic, the Ramayana. He is a vanara who aided Lord Rama, an avatar of Vishnu, in rescuing His Consort, Sita, from the Demon king, Ravana. Vanaras are ape-like humanoids, who were created by Brahma and other gods to help Rama in battle against Ravana.

    Hanuman is the son of Vayu, the Hindu God of Wind, and is looked upon by Hindus as the ultimate hero and great devotee of Lord Rama of the Ramayana. He represents the figure of the ideal being, as he is humble yet brave. His physical prowess, mental discipline and spiritual purity have made him extremely popular all over India.
     
    He is a provider of courage, hope, knowledge, intellect and devotion. He is pictured as a robust monkey holding a mace or gada, which is a sign of bravery, and having a picture of Lord Rama tattooed on his chest, which is a sign of his devotion to Lord Rama.
     
    He is also called Mahaveera (the great hero) or Pavan-suta (son of air) or Bajarangbali.  In Tamil Nadu he is known as Anjaneya.

    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.
