    Description

    This Buddha was broken during shipping.  His head came off.  It has been professionally reattached with a steel rod and it is very difficult to see where the break occurred hence the discount on the sculpture.
    The Buddha is seated in a posture of meditation with a large alms bowl resting in his hands.  The unique feature.  It is hallow on the inside.  There is a hallow space going from the bowl to the underside of the base that is perfect for keeping prayers or relics for worship inside the statue.  He is seated in the padmasana or lotus position which denotes deep concentration.  The Buddha has an urna or third eye on his forehead.  He has a natural, almost black, stone coloring.

    About Lava Stone:  The lava stone used for our sculptures was quarried in the volcanic mountains of Indonesia.  The lava stone is a solid stone that is perfect for any type of location and weather conditions, hot or cold, wet or dry. The stone is versatile in that it can be colored in a wide spectrum of colors.  It can also be polished or unpolished giving giving it a clean or rough feel.  In humid conditions if it is left untouched it takes on a very mysterious, antique, worn look like you would see in the temple ruins of south east Asia. 

    About Buddha

    Care

    Lava stone statues from Bali do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

    "You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically
    go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.
    "

    Soap and warm water is the best way to maintain the statue.  You can use a small brush to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

    Lava stone's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The stone can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture at least once a year so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture.  This will maintain the sculpture for your grandchildren and then their grandchildren!
