    Wonderful Experience - 1.29.2015

    I'm very happy with the service I've received, fast, easy, wonderful. I never thought, that I'd actually bought a statue on line. The page is very easy and well done, that it convinced me to buy the statue online. I also liked the fact that there are videos of some statues which is very helpful. I'm anxious to see my statue, I'm out of the country and I'll see it in a couple of days, for the meantime thanks a lot! Best regards Claudia Romo

    Lotus Sculpture adds to the beauty of life! - 1.22.2015

    Lotus Sculpture has the most beautiful statues in the world. There is definitely a chemistry between the statues, the team at Lotus Sculpture and the purchaser. Receiving our Umbrella Ganesh was memorable. Our dream of having this statue was fulfilled. Kyle offered such a great price for it. A truly beautiful piece by the amazingly talented artists of India, who sculpted him. It's a labor of love. I am convinced that Kyle Tortora was divinely chosen to spread the love that each statue brings to its owners. We named Umbrella Ganesh Mr. G. after our station weatherman. Lord Ganesh will keep an eye on the weather for all of us! Thanks Lotus Sculpture! You add to the beauty of life! Steven Olsen and Jenny Wolkowicki New Jersey

    My daughter loved her Buddha, best Christmas gift! - 12.26.2014

    I bought the garden Buddha for my daughter for Christmas. It is a beautiful sculpture. The entire process of ordering from the web site, which was a great web site, and receiving the sculptures in plenty of time for Christmas morning was perfect. It was truly a great gift to give her and she absolutely loved it. Forget the newest technology, a serene and beautiful sculpture is a wonderful way to gift someone you love.

    Description

    "That Ananta Shesha is the devotee incarnation of Godhead. He knows nothing but service to Lord Krishna."
    Sri Chaitanya Caritamrita Adi-lila 5.120

    Vishnu, the preserver of the Dharma, is hand carved into a natural root of Indonesian suar wood.  The upright form of Vishnu stands on the top with the irregular base jutting out in odd directions showing it to be carved from a natural piece of root.  Vishnu is standing with a slight smile on his face while holding a conch and gada or club.  The long tail of the serpent, Ananta Sesha is behind him.  Ananta Sesha is a 5 headed serpent and one of the primordial beings of creation.  Vishnu stands upon the 5 heads of Sesha.  The truly unique base depicts the cosmic ocean of milk complete with fish swimming throughout lily pads. 
    This piece is entirely one of a kind.  There is only one of this sculpture available and only will be one statue just like this!  An amazing statue of Vishnu the preserver!

    About Vishnu

    "Only the unlearned deem myself (Vishnu) and Shiva to be distinct; he , I , and Brahma are one, assuming different names for the creation, preservation and destruction of the universe.  We, as the triune Self, pervade all creatures; the wise therefore regard all others as themselves."
    Vishnu explains the Nature of the Trinity (trimurti ~

    Vishnu is one of the principal Hindu deities, worshiped as the protector and preserver of the world and restorer of dharma (moral order).  He is known chiefly through his avatars (incarnations), particularly Rama, Krishna and Buddha.  In theory, Vishnu manifests a portion of himself anytime he is needed to fight evil, and his appearances are innumerable; but in practice, ten incarnations are most commonly recognized. 
    Vishnu appears to be a prime example of how older gods and cults have been absorbed into Hinduism.  Thought to be linked with an earlier sun god, Vishnu's ten incarnations may also be examples of older gods that have been amalgamated.
    Vaishnavites, one of the largest Hindu groups, are the devotees of Vishnu as Ishvara, the Supreme Being, worshiped in the forms of his manifestations or incarnations.  Because of his pervasive presence, images as the focus of worship are of great importance, as are temple architecture and carving.

    The Ten Avatars of Lord Vishnu

    Vishnu's preserving, restoring, and protecting powers have been manifested in the world in a series of ten earthly incarnations known as avatars.  The avatars arrive either to prevent a great evil or to affect good upon the earth.  Nine are said to have descended already: three in nonhuman form, one in hybrid form and five in human form.  The most important are Rama, fearless upholder of the law of dharma  and Krishna; youthful hero of the Bhagavad-Gita  Vishnu's final avatar is expected to arrive at a time when the earth is at the end of its present cycle, with the purpose of destroying the world and subsequently recreating it.
    Matsya the Fish - Saved humanity and the sacred Veda text from the flood.
    Kurma the Turtle - Helped create the world by supporting it on his back. 
    Varaha the Boar - Raised the earth out of water with his tusks.
    Narashima, half-man, half lion - Destroyed a tyrant demon king.
    Vamana the Dwarf - Subdued king Bali, a powerful demon.
    Parashurama the Brahmin - Destroyed the warrior caste.
    Rama - Rescued his with Sita and killed the demon Ravana.
    Krishna - told the Epic poem Bhagavad-Gita to the warrior Arjuna.
    Buddha - The enlightened one.
    Kalki the Horse - Yet to come to the earth.

    Care

    "The use of a wood polish will keep the wood looking fresh and the colors vibrant."

    Wood statues are easy to take care of as they just need some annual upkeep to keep them looking as they did when they were first carved.  All the wood used by Lotus Sculpure's artists is dried out for months.  Moisture causes cracks in the sculpture as the wood contracts and expands in different temperatures.  Our wood has little to no moisture in it assuring that the sculpture is not going to crack in its journey into different climates.  Here are some simple tips to keep your statue in good condition:

    • Dust the statue as needed to prevent dirt build up
    • To make the statue shine use a natural wood cleaner and a cotton cloth to buff the sculpture
    We prefer Old English to polish and buff our statues.  The use of a wood polish like Old English will keep the wood looking fresh and keep the colors looking vibrant.  For natural wood and painted wooden statues we recommend Old English for lighter woods.  For darker wood statues we recommend Old English for darker woods.  Lotus Sculpture cleans and polishes each  wooden statue prior to shipping them to the customer.

    We recommend keeping wooden statues in an indoor environment.  Wood statues can go outside however, they will wear more quickly and develop an antique appearance.  If you would like to put a wood statue from Lotus Sculpture outside and keep the same appearance of the sculpture we would recommend first coating the statue with a couple of layers of sealant or polyurethane.  We would then recommend placing the statue in a partially covered area.  The more exposure to the elements the more the statue will wear over time.   Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions regarding your wooden statue from Lotus Sculpture, (760) 994-4455 or info@lotussculpture.com.
