    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!

    Recent Devi Yantra purchase....one of many - 7.15.2014

    We have been shopping at Lotus Sculpture for a good number of years and we have always been pleased with our purchases. As you perhaps know, buying the statues is the first step and "energizing" them at the temple is another step and the latter is important for "bonding" with the statue and to "take the metal" out of it. Putting the "deity" in the statue is a time-consuming and costly step, depending on the temple one chooses. It could range between $100 - 300. Fortunately the purchase of the statue itself at Lotus Sculpture makes it a great first experience and the next steps are equally moving, organizing the trip, purchases for the real deity, costs to the temple and swamis etc. I wished that some of the statues were more affordable, but then I understand that you offer quality product and that you run a business, not a temple. At the most a payment plan should be offered (pardon me if it is, I am not aware of it) instead of putting the item on a credit card. Personally, I do not like to associate my statues with credit. I see every item that you sell as divine, at least the path to an incredible experience with the "other" world, be it Hindu or Buddhist. Thanks for the great opportunity for shopping at Lotus Sculpture. I received the Yantra and will have it consecrated at the Kali Temple in Burtonsville, MD. We have also bought: Kali blessed in Burtonsville, MD, a.k.a Miss Kitty The Goddess with the mirror (she is now Meenakshi, blessed at the Murugan temple of North America, a.k.a Babe Ganesh, a.k.a Bongo on drums, blessed at the Ganesh temple, Queens Muruga and his peacock,a.k.a. Murray, blessed at Palani Andavar's shrine, Murugan temple of North America. The peacock lamp They have all been blessed and contrary to popular belief, I do not have a special shrine or altar in my house, I place them wherever I desire in the house, bedroom, living room and I do not feel disrespectful towards them. I figure, if they can see me in form and formless, what difference does it make whether they are in my bedroom or in a special part of the house dedicated to them? I do not believe in strict adherence to rituals. I do not possess these statues for religious purposes only. We offer them the food we eat on a daily basis. They also have special names. They make us happy, we love them. The represent beauty, a presence of something divine or more, I do not know. I know that they love us and smile in turn, NOT ALL THE TIME and that is how I know that the deity is here with us. They sometimes show sadness. Basically the relationship with them is an endless labor of love, cooking for them, celebrating birthdays with them, buying fruits for bongo, gardening for them and so forth. The experience is unbelievable.

    Best place to buy any kind of Hindu or Buddhist icon! - 7.10.2014

    Kyle Tortora provides a great service in making these murthies available, and best of all, he has a deep understanding of Hinduism and Buddhism, and the esoterics of worship. I've recently bought my second murthy from Lotus. Kyle maintains an outstanding inventory of beautiful statues in all materials and sizes and his prices are extremely reasonable. Shipping was super fast! His customer service is among the best I've ever encountered. Thank you Lotus Sculpture!

    Better than going to India to find the perfect fit. - 7.4.2014

    Having gone to India to purchase statues many times, spending days trying to find good craftsmanship and then arranging the import is no more ! The wood sculpture that I bought for my husband for our fifth wedding anniversary was so much better in person than even in the pictures. Thank you Lotus Scuplture ! I will be purchasing more in the future for sure.

    Description

    Ganesh is larger than life! His massive frame expresses the abundance of love Ganesh has for the world. Ganesh has energy emanating from him in His radiant dancing posture and because of the actual large size of the statue. It is impossible to be in the same room without ones eyes immediately settling on Ganesh. The large size of the statue has also allowed the artists to work on all the details of his weapons and ornaments. The tollvalasi, ornaments worn on Ganesh's upper arms, are beautiful! The carvings are magnificent and fully detailed. The same diamond shape design is carved onto the ornament on his large belly. He wears a double cobra belt. Each cobra's hood is fully exposed and ready to strike. The hands and toes are chubby and lifelike. They look as if they will just come alive with Ganesh dancing. The rat can be moved around the the statue or separate from the statue. The base has two holes in it for poles to be put through them. During festival days poles are inserted and Ganesh is picked up and carried through the town for all to experience darsana or "sight" of the God.

    There is a small rat that is separate from the piece.  It is meant to be placed on the base just under the right foot of Ganesh.  The rat is 5" tall.

    About Ganesh

    "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.
