    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

    The Hindu God Ganesh is the remover of obstacles invoked before beginning any new endeavor in business, spiritual and personal lives.  Ganesh is shown is ecstatic dance with one leg lifted as delicately as a Being his size can.  He holds a copy of the Hindu holy vedas in his left hand while his right hand holds a tassel from his leggings.  On the base is a full carving of his vehicle mooshika, a rat.  Since rats are able to gnaw there way through almost anything they are a fitting companion for the remover of obstacles! 
    Ganesh is hand carved from one piece of red marble and completely one of a kind.  When you purchase Ganesh you receive this exact sculpture.

    About Gorora Stone:  Gorora stone or Red marble is a wonderful stone for sculpture because of its wide color range.  It is rarer than most soft stones and must be shipped into Tamil Nadu from Uttar Pradesh in the north.  The stone has wonderful cream/yellow/green veins in it contrasting to the beautiful deep red to sometimes pink natural coloration of the stone.  The stone is extremely glossy.  When a red marble statue is polished it has a disarming shimmer.

    About Ganesh

    "In heaven Lord Ganesh will establish the predominance of gods, on earth that of people, in the nether world that of serpents and anti-gods"
    ~A Hymn from Sri Bhagavat-Tathva~

    The chubby, gentle, wise, elephant-headed Ganesh, or Ganesha, is one of Hinduisms most popular deities. He is the remover of obstacles, the deity whom worshippers first acknowledge when they visit a temple. He is also patron of letters and of learning; he is the legendary scribe who, using his broken tusk, which he often holds, wrote down parts of the Mahabharata epic. Ganesh is usually depicted colored red; he is pot bellied, has one tusk broken, and has four arms that may hold a pasam, a goad, and a pot of rice or sweetmeats. The sweet meats are held in a type of bowl known as a laddus. His appetite for these sweets is legendary and offerings of them are often left at his shrine.

    Statues of Ganesh can be found in most Indian towns. His image is placed where new houses are to be built; he is honored at the start of a journey or business venture, and poets traditionally invoke him at the start of a book.

    A pasam is a triple twine weapon. Each of the three twines represents, arrogance and conceit, Maya - the illusory nature of the real world, ignorance. In Hindu ideology weapons are a viewed as symbolic tools to destroy the ego rather than to cause any type of bloodshed. Goads (or elephant prods) are typically used to direct elephants. Goads are symbolic of how one should steer the soul away from the ignorance and illusions of this earthly world just as a mahout would steer an elephant away from any treacherous path.

    Care

    "Use a cotton cloth and gently buff the surface of the statue to bring out the natural polish of the stone."

    White, red and black marble 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.  Here are some easy tips to keep your White, red and black marble statues from Lotus Sculpture looking like the gods they are:
    • Dust the statue as needed to prevent dirt build up
    • To make the statue shine use a cotton cloth to buff the sculpture
    • You can use a small amount of natural oil such as coconut oil or olive oil to further polish the sculpture
    • Use a tooth brush to get into the hard to reach spaces of the sculpture
    • DO NOT TOUCH the painted surfaces of any of the white marble statues.  This will damage the painting if done often
    We recommend keeping our marble statues in an indoor environment.  The statues are durable however not durable enough to brave the natural outdoors.  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.
