Beautiful Goddess - 12.6.2013
Kyle is great wonderful service and he is very helpful and friendly! All the statues are fine quality and look amazing. The store has a large selection and something for all budgets. My first statue I got was a Saraswati which I got from the showroom and he polished her up before handing her over to me. About a month later I got my Lakshmi which I ordered online... I know everything there looks great and so now I don't have to worry and can order online. I'm glad I found Lotus Sculpture!
The purchasing experience was very pleasant. It was very easy to place the order for the idol. I was even able to change my order at the last minute.
The Nataraja statue arrived very well packaged. The idol is very beautifully crafted, and is an excellent piece of craftmanship.

Shiva in the House! - 11.17.2013
This beautiful Nataraja was an impulse buy, and it arrived at my front door after a few days delay to retrieve it from it's temporary home at the Depak Chopra Center for Wellness, which only added to it's beauty. I did have to spend a day polishing the floors to give it a worthy room. I shipped art from India in the past and I was very glad to be able to have such quality art without the expense of going to India to find it myself. Thank You Lotus.

I received the item I ordered, a beautiful wall Naga Kanya, well within the shipping parameters and she was in perfect condition. Really one of the nicest statues of any Hindu/Buddhist for its price that I've ever found. Well done!!

Top product and flawless service - 10.9.2013
The experience dealing with Lotus Sculpture was flawless from start to finish. When my Shiva arrived and I unpacked it, it literally took my breath away. Such a quality piece. I can highly recommend them if you are in the market for a unique piece of art.
This one of a kind Buddha statue is hand carved by the artists of Bali. When you order this piece you will receive this exact sculpture. This awesome Buddha statue is truly one of a kind as there is only one made exactly like this!
This large meditating garden Buddha statue is encaptivating. He is dressed in winter robes that cover both his shoulders with a sash covering his left breast. His face is a masterpiece of carving. His handsome features convey a sense of bliss that one looks to have in a Buddha sculpture. His slight smile is infectious! He has a large urna or third eye on his forehead. The third eye is symbol of the Buddhas enlightenment, that he is able to see the true nature of the world. His hands are on top of his lap in the dhyana mudra of meditation. The Buddha is seated in the padmasana or lotus position. This is the leg position of deep meditation. The color of the sculpture is a beautiful dark tan color.
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.
"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change." ~ Buddha~
The Buddha, whose original name was Siddhartha Gautama, was the founder of Buddhism, the religion and the philosophical system that produced a great culture throughout much of southern and eastern Asia. Buddha, meaning "awakened one" or "enlightened one" is a title not a name. In Hindu Dogma, the Buddha is viewed as being the 9th avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu. The Buddha was a son of the rulers Sakyas. He was married at the age of 16 and lived in luxury and comfort sheltered from the harsh realities of life. When he was 29 he realized that men are subject to old age, sickness and death. He became aware of the suffering inherent in existence. He resolved to give up princely life and become a wandering ascetic (samana) in search for the Truth. With the two of samanas he attained mystical states of elevated consciousness but he failed to find the Truth. He continued his search and was joined by five ascetics in a grove near Uruvela, where he practiced sever austerities and self-mortification for six years. When he fainted away in weakness, he abandoned ascetic practices to seek his own path to Enlightenment. Discarding the teachings of his contemporaries, through meditation he achieved Enlightenment, or ultimate understanding. There after the Buddha instructed his followers in the dharma (truth) and the "Middle Way" a path between worldly life and extremes of self-denial. The essence of the Buddha's early preaching was said to be the four Noble truths: 1) life is fundamentally disappointment and suffering. 2) suffering is a result of one's desires for pleasure, power, and continued existence; 3) to stop disappointment and suffering on must stop desiring; and 4) the way to stop desiring and thus suffering is the Noble eight fold path - right views, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right awareness and right concentration. The realization of the truth of anatman (no eternal self) was taught as essential for the indescribable state of release called nirvana.
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!
