Lotus Sculpture Rocks!! - 11.20.2014
I am a Set Decoration Buyer for a television series on a major network. Lotus Sculpture provided us with fast, efficient services, and their product was just as they described.
It was a pleasure working with them, and I will be ordering from them in the future. Lotus Sculpture rocks!

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.
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.

Outstanding quality - 10.7.2014
I have made significant purchases from Lotus Sculpture over the past seven years. What I like the most is the outstanding quality of products and service. I have experienced over this periodof time that all of the vigrahams I received from you have been done with much devotion and they have life embedded within them. Thank you!
This wooden wall panel depicts 3 forms of Ganesh. The Ganesh depicted on top shows Ganesh seated on his vahana or vehicle a rat. The two other Ganeshas show him in two different postures of dance. In each frieze he holds his broken tusk, a noose and an ax. In each depiction he has two gana attendants with plates of sweets on their heads, two flying nymphs and mahakala above his head. Gana are Ganesha's attendant dwarfs given to him by his father, Shiva in compensation for Shiva cutting off his Ganesha's head. At the bottom of the panel are two yalis facing away from each other separated by two columns. Yalis are mythical beasts that are made up of a combination of many different animals, including lions, alligators, and birds.
The panel is 1 inch deeper than most wall panels with a 4 inch depth. This gives the panel added details and fuller figures. The panel is a deep rosewood color. There is a hook on the top so it can be hung on a wall or it can easily lean against a wall.
This Hindu wooden panel is handcrafted by the wood artisans in South India. The panel pictured is the only sculpture Lotus Sculpture has like this in our store. When you order this piece you will receive this exact wooden panel. It is truly one of a kind as there is only one made exactly like this!
"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.
"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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
