    Description

    This Buddha sculpture is handcrafted by the stone artisans in Bali.  The sculpture pictured is the only sculpture like it sold by Lotus Sculpture.  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!

    This garden Buddha is very unique in that he has both hands extended in the bhumisparsha mudra or earth touching hand position.  His hands are reaching down towards the earth goddess, Sthavara, to bear witness to his attaining enlightenment.   Usually only his right hand is in this hand position.  He sits upon a large blooming lotus base that is much larger than a typical base adding height to the sculpture.  The Buddha has an urna or third eye on his forehead.  The Buddha is wearing full winter robes that flow between his legs almost cascading down the sculpture.  The Buddha would make a perfect addition to any zen or meditation garden.

    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 Buddha

    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!
