    Tmeless sculptures - 12.4.2014

    I had ordered the andal and I was worried how the details would be as to the features. I absolutely loved it and it has the ancient looks of Indian sculptures and the features were sharp. The item arrived in couple of days and I was thrilled. I collect antiques and Indian artifacts and I am sure I will be a frequent customer at your store. I think I have found my "go to " shop for Indian relics. Thank you so much Savitha

    Wonderful Experience - 11.7.2014

    I was looking for religious statues for my home for quite a while. Every website I looked at was either too expensive or too confusing to navigate. Then I happened upon Lotus Sculpture. Not only was it the most user-friendly site I've ever seen, it also had the most reasonable prices. For the size and detailed carving of the statue you will not find a better price, unless you grab a block of wood and carve it yourself. The site allows you to first pick which religious statue you want then you can pick which size and then which material.....Brilliant!!!.. I had chosen my statues within minutes. Everything arrived professionally packed in 5 days all the way up to Canada. I even decided to call the number on the website to ask the owner Kyle a few questions and he literally answered on the first ring. He was very accommodating and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this store. My statues are getting rave reviews with my friends. Thanks again Kyle. Keep up the good work.

    Beautiful, so full of energy - 11.6.2014

    I love my Ganesha! The statue is beautifully and painstakingly carved with a great attention to detail. I will be using the statue also for spiritual practice and this Ganesha is perfect in that all the symbolic details are accurate, and there is a feeling that the energy of the deity is already in him and one can have an intimate contact with Ganesha. Also many thanks to Lotus Sculpture for the efficient and friendly service, and for getting him to me so fast! I will be shopping again with you!

    Lord Ganesha - 11.4.2014

    I ordered this sculpture as a gift to myself for the holidays. I have always had a statue of Lord Ganesha in my home - this one is wonderful! All that he represents and inspires in us I truly believe happens when we pay homage to him. He will be a treasured addition to my home.

    • Materials: Bangladeshi Lost Wax Method Bronze
    • Total Height Including Base: 25 inches
    • Base Width & Depth: 11 x 7 inches
    • Weight: 54 pounds
    • The Buddha has a beautiful halo or siraschakra behind his head
    • A unique feature of this sculpture is the presence of the Buddha's earrings. After his princely youth he abandoned his possessions and is never shown wearing earrings
    • Bangladeshi bronze statues are extremely rare. Lotus Sculpture is the only company who carries them. Soon, we fear, there will be no more Hindu bronze artists in Muslim Bangadesh so this is an opportunity to have a piece of history
    • This Buddha is a one of a kind, lost wax method, bronze statue. Only one of these statues is ever made

    Description

    The figure is remarkable for its realistic yet delicate delineation of the limbs and the robe which seems to cling to the body.  The garment (sanghati) covers both shoulders.  The end of the garment flows over the left shoulder, and falls in graceful folds at the back.  The Buddha holds a separate portion in front that is gathered in crisp pleats in his left palm.  As the right hand is held out in the Abhaya-mudra, the hem of the garment falls on either side reaching slightly below the knee.  A very naturalistic succession of wavy folds appear on the surface of the garment revealing the soft contours of the body underneath.  The treatment of the folds of the garment is slightly asymmetrical and thus more akin to the Gandhara school.  The boarder of the garment is the only portion visible of it, and is seen by the side of the legs and in between them.  The treatment of the face with its straight nose, lovely lips,  urna (tuft of hair between the eyebrow) and the magnificient rayed halo with a flourish has an affinity with the Gandhara school. 

    One interesting note about this sculpture is the presence of earrings on the Buddha.  After Siddartha joined the samanas on his path to Buddha hood he renounced all of his possessions.  Thus leaving behind the heavy earrings of his former life as prince.  The Buddha is always depicted with long hanging earlobes with no earrings in them.  The stretched earlobes serve as a reminder of the days when the Siddartha was a prince and donned heavy gold earrings.  The presence of earrings on the enlightened Buddha is a beautiful yet obvious mistake by the sculptor.

    About Buddha

    Care

    Bangladeshi Bronze is an extremely durable metal made from a combination of 5 metals; copper, iron, tin, with minute additions of silver and gold.  This combination is called Panchaloha bronze and is the basis for making the sacred Hindu temple statues around the world.  Copper is the most prevalent metal in the alloy.  Copper also gives the metal a softer composition that allows the bronze artisans to carve the details that are prevalent in each piece.    All the Bangleshi bronze sculpture Lotus Sculpture carries are Panchaloham and thus suited for any home altar or community temple. 

    "If you would like the piece to shine use a cotton cloth with some coconut oil or other natural oil to wipe down the bronze statue."

    Because of the durability of the metal not much is needed to maintain a bronze sculpture.  Many of our customers purchase a bronze statue and perform daily puja and abhisheka consisting of bathing the Hindu deity in ghee, milk, coconut milk or other liquids.  In this case nothing is needed to keep the statue clean as it will be bathed daily.  If the sculpture is used for "darshan" or simply viewing the sculpture it is best to dust the statue as needed so no dirt collects in the details of the sculpture. For Bangladeshi bronze statues if you would like the sculpture to shine, use a cotton cloth with some coconut oil or other natural oil to wipe down the piece as needed. 
    If you have any questions concerning your bronze statue please email us at info@lotussculpture.com or call us at 1(760) 994-4455.
