    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

    This carving is a truly marvelous depiction of the goddess of wealth Lakshmi!  Lakshmi is the centerpiece of the sculpture holding two lotus flowers with her other two hands in the abhaya mudra. The sculpture boasts 7 large, beautifully carved peacocks with the top of the statue crowned with a peacock displaying all his feathers.  The details of the peacocks are exceptional!  On either side of the double lotus base that Lakshmi is standing upon are two makaras that are a mix of various animals.  On the front of the base are two elephants with raised trunks with a water vessel between them.

    The term "Kodi" refers to the style in which the statue was carved.  Kodi sculptures have much more detail in them than traditional sculpture and therefore require much more time and artistic skill.

    The painting scheme is adopted from the brightly colored paintings one sees in south Indian temples.  South Indian 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, bright colored paint.  The vibrant colors mirror the vibrant life of south India.

    About Lakshmi

    "Beautiful goddess seated on a chariot, delighted by songs on lustful elephants, bedecked with lotuses, pearls and gems, lustrous as fire, radiant as gold, resplendent as the sun, calm as the moon, mistress of cows and horses - take away poverty and misfortune bring joy, riches, harvest and children."

    Draped in red saree, bedecked with gold ornaments, seated on a lotus, pot in hand, flanked by white elephants, the image of Lakshmi adorns most Hindu homes and business establishments.

    Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth, fortune, power, luxury, beauty, fertility, and auspiciousness.  She holds the promise of material fulfillment and contentment.  She is described as restless, whimsical yet maternal, with her arms raised to bless and to grant her blessings.

    Shri is the sacred name of Lakshmi.  Shri is written atop most documents and spoken before addressing a god, teacher holy man or any revered individual.  The word evokes grace, affluence abundance, auspiciousness and authority.  When the word is spoken or written an aura of holiness is established.  Whatever follows is imbued with divine blessing.  Just as the word "Om" is associated with the mystical side of life, Shri is associated with the material side of existence.

    Lakshmi represents the beautiful and bountiful aspect of nature.  As Bhoodevi, the earth-goddess, she nurtures life; as Shreedevi, the goddess of fortune, she bestows power, pleasure and prosperity on those who deserve her grace.  To realize her, one must respect the laws of life and appreciate the wonders of existence.

    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.
