    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

    This sculpture is a copy of the magnificent Yoga Narasimha sculpture that is carved in Hampi, India.  The mystifying piece captures lord Narasimha with his arms held up on his knees in silent repose.  There is a strap of cloth going around his legs helping to hold his knees upright.  His hands dangle down in a very relaxing posture.  Like Vishnu, Narasimha holds a conch and discus.  The sculpture is a beautiful representation of south Indian lost wax art. 

    This sculpture is a one of a kind, lost wax method bronze statue hand made by the artists of South India.  The sculpture pictured is the only sculpture Lotus Sculpture has like this in our store.  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!  Each bronze is hand made by a group of bronze artists whose families have been crafting bronze sculptures for centuries with the art being passed on by each generation.  The hand crafted bronzes statues have an incredible amount of detail which many other mass produced, brass Hindu statues lack.  Lost Wax South Indian bronze statues are the only sculptures used by Hindu temples throughout India and the world.  Click here to learn more about the Lost Wax Method.

    Story of Narasimha:  Hiranyakashipu (the brother of Hiranyaksha who was killed by the Varaha Avatar of Lord Vishnu) wanted to take revenge on the devotees and in particular on Lord Vishnu. He wanted to become the master of all the three worlds - Heaven, Earth & Pathala. He went to Mount Mandarachala and began penance which continued for years. Due to the intensity of Penance, Lord Brahma appeared before Hiranyakashipu.  He asked Lord Brahma for immortality as a reward for his years of penance . Brahma, however, declined, saying "All living beings must face death Hiranyakashipu. You can, however, choose your death wish."

    Hiranyakashipu then asked for three conditions, as his death wish, "'O Brahma, let not death come to me either by man or beast, nor devil, nor god shall cause my death by day or by night with steel or stone or wood, indoors or outdoors, or earth or in sky. Grant me undisputed lordship over the world". Brahma agreed and Hiranyakashipu got his death wishes granted. Thus he became practically immortal.

    After securing his death wishes Hiranyakashipu conquered  the worlds and became a demon tyrant.  He banned all pujas to Lord Vishnu and declared himself a God. The devotees of Vishnu approached Lord Vishnu for help.  Lord Vishnu asked them to be patient. Hiranyakashipu's wife Kayadhu gave birth to Prahlad in the Ashrama of Narada.  Prahlad grew up and became an ardent devotee of Vishnu.  Hiranyakashipu, however, wanted his son to be a strong and ruthless King like himself.  Realizing that Prahlad always prayed to Lord Vishnu, Hiranyakashipu tried to school his son against the influence of Lord Vishnu.  All their efforts to influence Prahlad against Lord Vishnu failed and Prahlad was still as devoted as ever to Lord Vishnu.

    Hiranyakashipu ordered his servants to kill Prahlad if he refused to accept the supremacy of his father. They tried to kill him by throwing down a mountain, drowning, poisoning, and burning him.  They failed in all their attempts because Lord Vishnu was protecting his devotee.  King Hiranyakashipu was very angry on hearing the reports on the failed attempts on the life of his son, Prahlad.

    One day the king challenged his son in the open court:

    "Prahlad! Is my enemy, whom you worship, present anywhere here?".

    Prahlad replied, "Vishnu is omnipresent. There's not a single place where he's not found."

    Hiranyakashipu's fury was at its climax. He heated an iron pillar and then asked Prahlad, "Can you embrace this pillar if your Vishnu is in it also?"

    Prahlad did not hesitate for a moment but rushed towards the pillar and embraced it.  The heated iron did not burn him.  The king got up from his throne in fury and hit the pillar with his mace.

    And to his surprise! The pillar cracked with a thundering sound and Vishnu appeared there in the form of Narasimha.

    One half of his body was of a lion and the other half of a man. He had matted hair on his head, large moustaches on the face and terrible teeth in the mouth. His paws had terrible nails on them..

    Hiranyakashipu remembered his first death wish, "To be killed by some one who is neither human nor beast." It was also the twilight hour, neither day nor night, the second death wish.

    He sat on the threshold of the court room, placed the body of the demon on his thighs, and pierced his nails into the body of the demon and broke open his stomach. The demon was killed on the spot in a moment. The place was neither inside nor outside. This was Hiranyakashipu's third death wish.

    Lord Narasimha was furious and roared.  However, he was pacified when Prahlad touched his feet and goddess Lakshmi also tried to cool him.  Lord Narasimha then made Prahlad the King.

    About Avatars of Vishnu

    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 non-human 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.

    1.   Matsya the Fish - Saved humanity and the sacred Veda text from the flood.
    2.   Kurma the Turtle - Helped create the world by supporting it on his back. 
    3.   Varaha the Boar - Raised the earth out of water with his tusks.
    4.   Narashima, half-man, half lion - Destroyed a tyrant demon king.
    5.   Vamana the Dwarf - Subdued king Bali, a powerful demon.
    6.   Parashurama the Brahmin - Destroyed the warrior caste.
    7.   Noble Rama - Rescued his wife Sita and killed the demon Ravana. Upholder of the dharma.
    8.   Krishna the Divine Cowherder - told the Epic poem Bhagavad-Gita to the warrior Arjuna.
    9.   Buddha - The enlightened one.
    10. Kalki the Horse - Destroyer of the world.  Yet to come to the earth.

    Care

    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 of India and 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 South Indian 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 both polished golden bronzes and antique patina 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.

    Many of our bronze Hindu statues have been placed in outdoor temples.  Bronze's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture every couple of months so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture and then use a cotton cloth with some natural oil to give the statue a shine.  Both indoors and outdoors a bronze statue can be left alone which, overtime, will give the bronze an antique patina.

    On some bronze statues you can see small hints of lime green, verde-gris patina.  Some people prize this color for its age others want to remove it.  If you would like to remove the verde-gris use a tooth brush with some coconut oil or other natural oil and lightly go over the verde-gris.  This should remove the unwanted patina from the sculpture.
