Description Devi stands beneath a canopy of vegetation gazing at her reflection in a mirror.  Her slender and curvaceous body make an "S" shape as it flows from her head down through her midsection to her protruding hips and finally ending solidly on the ground.   In the canopy are three peacocks with their long tails hanging down.  Devi has a beautiful face with her hair carved into tight curls.  She wears only finely carved necklaces and leggings that leave her bosom exposed truly giving her a motherly appearance.  Next to her is a fat attendant holding a small monkey like a child in his arms.  The Devi sculpture has colored a natural, dark wood color. 
Devi is entirely hand carved by the talented wood artisans of South India and completely one of a kind.
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.
