    Fabulous service - 9.16.2014

    When I ordered my Ganesha statue, I didn't expect it to arrive so quickly but BOOM, there he was on my porch in less than a week! It was packed meticulously and with the love that it deserved. He is sitting proudly in my living room now and I couldn't be happier. Thank you!

    Buddha - 9.8.2014

    I cannot say enough positive about my experience in working with Kyle at Lotus Sculpture. I made a purchase of a beautiful Buddha, and it was damaged during shipping. Kyle was so positive and supportive, professional and personable: as unhappy as I am over loosing the beautiful Buddha I had chosen, Kyle worked with me to find another. I am very delighted with my Buddha; the new one has arrived safetly and is even more amazing than Kyle could describe. Every time I have ever contacted Kyle with any question, he has been very quick to respond, and given me good information. My overall experience with Kyle and Lotus Sculpture has been very positive, and I am looking forward to future satisfying events. Thank you, Des.

    A Wonderful Experience - 8.25.2014

    Buying these Ganeshas were a dream of mine for so long and I'm glad I did. Kyle was absolutely wonderful to deal and my Ganeshas came rather quickly and beautifully packaged. They are treasures on my altar and already I'm thinking of my next purchase. Thank you Lotus Sculpture for your wonderful service.

    Antique Meenakshi Statue - 8.17.2014

    I have been looking at this statue for years, and knew deep down that I wanted to add it to my collection of other Lotus Sculpture statues. This antique statue is unique (estimated to be between 50 and 200 years old) and was offered to me at such a special discount that I felt overwhelmed when I opened the box, carefully packaged by Kyle and his team. When I looked at Goddess Meenakshi I smiled, because her nose is slightly crooked just like mine! I knew immediately that I am part of her and she is part of me. She is now sitting proudly on a dresser beside another antique statue of Shiva. Their respective heights are perfect. The love couple is complete! Thanks to Lotus Sculpture and Kyle Tortora for his generosity and for giving me this one chance opportunity to be connected to what is close to my heart. May Lotus Sculpture be prosperous!

    Description

    Hanuman is kneeling with his hand held up in the abhaya mudra.  Hanuman is known for his loyalty to Ram and thus he is probably kneeling to his friend Lord Rama.  Besides having wonderful details the bronze Hanuman has a beautiful wood hue that will darken in time to a rich deep bronze color. 

    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. 

    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

    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.

    If you have any questions concerning your bronze statue please email us at info@lotussculpture.com or call us at 1(760) 994-4455.
