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.

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!

Backyard Beauties - 8.9.2014
Kyle with Lotus Sculpture, worked with us to find the best situation for our new swimming pool. We purchased two beautiful Buddha Heads that now stand on our pool columns overlooking the pool. Beautiful!!! We'll continue to shop here for more special Buddha's.

Nataraja - 8.4.2014
LOVE IT. I can feel the energy of it. VERY BEAUTIFUL!
Reviewer:Fabienne Diaz (Chapel Hill, North Carolina, US)
This beautiful Garden Ganesh is laying upon a double lotus base with his arm resting on a pillow. Ganesh holds prayer beads, an elephant goad, and a water vessel. He wears a crown and beautifully carved brocade leggings. The position of Lord Ganesh's trunk has a symbolic meaning. If the trunk turns to the Ganesh's right, the trunk represents moksha, good for renouncing the world. Ganesh is colored a dark green color which would compliment the natural colors of any garden setting. He would be a welcome addition to any outdoor area where relaxation and being at ease is the main goal. A beautiful sculpture of Ganesha!
This one of a kind Ganesh statue is hand carved by the artists of Bali. 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!
About Lava Stone: The lava stone used for our sculptures was quarried in the volcanic mountains of Indonesia. The lava stone is a solid stone that is perfect for any type of location and weather conditions, hot or cold, wet or dry. The stone is versatile in that it can be colored in a wide spectrum of colors. It can also be polished or unpolished giving giving it a clean or rough feel. In humid conditions if it is left untouched it takes on a very mysterious, antique, worn look like you would see in the temple ruins of south east Asia.
"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.
Lava stone statues from Bali do not need much maintenance. The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating. They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use.
"You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup."
Soap and warm water is the best way to maintain the statue. You can use a small brush to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair.
Lava stone's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate. The stone can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold. We suggest you bathe the sculpture at least once a year so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture. This will maintain the sculpture for your grandchildren and then their grandchildren!
