    Best Experience - 2.20.2015

    I really appreciate Mr. Kyle Tortora for answering my every question in detail in emails and also on the phone before I bought the sculptures. I ordered a matching pair of Nataraja and Sivakami Amman bronze sculptures. I got what I expected from the photos that are shown in the web-site. I will send a photo of how I display the sculptures in my Hindu home shrine once I have completed the construction of the shrine in the next six months. Thank you so much for your wonderful services. God bless you always.

    Wonderful Aesthetic And Spiritual Treasures - 2.12.2015

    We couldn't' be more pleased with the 36" Vishnu and 10" Ganesh we ordered from Lotus Sculpture. Each piece arrived perfectly and safely packaged and what a delight to open each of these packages and see the wonders they held. These sculptures are so beautifully and artfully crafted. I know we will continue to discover more and more of the intricate details, as Vishnu's power and Ganesh's sense of humor become more and more visible. We will always cherish what these sculptures have done to enhance our new home, both aesthetically and spiritually. Thank you, Carol Younghans and Ray Hockedy

    Excellent customer service, great produce! - 2.9.2015

    I had been looking for a Ho-Tei (Chinese "Laughing Buddha") sculpture and was having very little luck. Somehow I ran across Lotus Sculpture in an internet search and found what I was looking for. The price and shipping costs were quite reasonable, and a phone message left on their customer phone line was answered same day by one of the owners. My wife loves her Ho-Tei sculpture, thanks!!

    Description

    The Buddha's face is lit up with laughter. His corpulent body is full of the Buddhas abundant happiness. Even his ear lobes are fat. The laughing Buddha is in a seated position. His right hand is carrying a gold ingot and his left hand holding prayer malas. His demeanor is an extremely relaxing one, reminding us not to worry too much about negativities and focus on the positive in one's life.  The Fat and Happy Budai statue is colored black with subtle red accents.  The Buddha would be perfect for any garden in any weather!

    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. 

    About Fat and Happy Buddha

    The lovable fat, happy, laughing Buddha represents the ideals of good health, wealth, happiness, prosperity and longevity. He is known as Budai (Chinese) and Hotai (Japanese). He is lovingly referred to as the Happy Buddha, Laughing Buddha or the Buddha of Wealth. The Laughing Buddha is based on an historical figure of an obese Zen monk who wandered China during the Laing Dynasty. He was known for carrying a sack of candy, which he gave to children on the street. People believed that he was an incarnation of the Maitreya Buddha.
     
    In sculpture the Laughing Buddha is depicted with a large, exposed belly carrying a hemp sack, which is filled with gold, health and happiness. Buddhists do not see wealth as being only material but spiritual wealth as well. Both his belly and the large sack convey this concept of abundance.
     
    The laughing Buddha of Wealth is always depicted in a relaxing posture, exuding happiness to all who are near Him. His smile and jovial nature is infectious, reminding you that there is more to life than just worldly possessions. His large Belly is always bursting out of his robes. Sometimes he wears red colored robes that represent good fortune and blessings.
     
    He usually carries a gold ingot (sycee) or a small hemp sack in his hand.  He sits or stands upon a hemp sack of wealth under him. Around his neck, he wears auspicious mala beads as well as a large, round medallion that bring blessings to the surrounding. He sometimes holds a stick known as a wish stick, which he uses to grant people boons. Many people believe that rubbing his belly will grant anyone their wish.
     
    He is often seen surrounded by children or carrying children on his back.  Children naturally flock to him, not just because he gives them candy but because his joyous nature is so childlike that they see him as an equal.  Some people believe a statue of the laughing Buddha is good to have around newborns as well as those wanting to have children.

    Care

    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!
