    A Fine and Finely Detailed Buddha - 4.14.2014

    My experience with your company's service was excellent -- the statue actually arrived a day earlier than promised. The Buddha itself looks perfectly at home in my garden, as I hoped it would. The details in the face and clothing are exceptional and the patina is just right. I love it!

    Lotus Sculpture Experience - 4.5.2014

    We had a wonderful experience purchasing a stone Buddha from Kyle. He was very responsive to our initial questions and then allowed us "quiet time" to think through what we wanted. Kyle found the best shipping price for us and our 33" garden Buddha arrived packed meticulously. It looks beautiful on top of a small waterfall over our pool. I have promised Kyle a photograph once our spring foliage is out. In addition to our purchase, we enjoyed reading about Kyle's travels and life journey on his website. Clearly, bringing these statues to our individual homes is more than just a business for him- it is like sharing something that is important to him. If we ever decide to purchase another statue it will definitely be through Lotus Sculpture. Thanks so much!

    No Obstacles - 3.15.2014

    I was looking for a Ganesha murti that would suit the entrance to the new studio I and my beloved have created in Kyoto From my initial inquiry to the day of delivery, the service from Lotus Sculpture was stellar. Kyle answered my questions promptly, gave me two shipping options, and shipped the sculpture out the day I confirmed the order. I received the statue in only 5 days. It was packed with care, and very easy to unpack. The packing Lotus Sculpture used was molded to the sculptures form, which I felt showed additional care and respect for the murti. Once Ganesha was unpacked and stood up, I took some time to examine the artistry of the statue. It is actually even more gorgeous than it appeared in the photo. In fact, my beloved, who is not as passionate about the murtis as I, also remarked that he was quite handsome! It is a true work of art and devotion. I am extremely content with this purchase. If you are in need of a quality murti from a reliable dealer who exhibits a love for the statues they sell, I believe your expectations will be exceeded by Lotus Sculpture. Namaste.

    Spectacular - 3.12.2014

    Dear Kyle, I have a bit of experience with Antique Asian Spiritual Art as my teacher, Rudi, was a dealer in it in NYC in the 60's and early 70's. Then in the 80's and 90's with Stuart Perrin also. I had a modest collection for a long time. After living in Shree Gurudev Rudrananda Yoga Ashram in Big Indian, NY in the early 1970's, there were many quality antique pieces there. Very fortunate to have been around this art, huge buddhas, great large Tibetian and Indian bronzes and Thankas, etc. I am very pleased and satisfied with the beautifully carved and finished 3' wood Ganesh recently purchased. The value was spectacular, and he makes a welcome addition to our meditation hall. Thank you Lotus Sculpture for making affordable quality pieces accessable to all. Warmly, Michele Galante, MD

    Description

    The sculpture is enormous!  The shear mass of the stone takes your breath away when standing next to it.  The Moai sculpture was designed after the Moai replica in the Museum of Natural History in New York City.   The Moai was commissioned as the center piece for a hotel development in Miami, Florida. 

    The history of Easter Island is rich and controversial.  Its inhabitants have endured famines, epidemics, civil war, slave raids and colonialism, and near deforestation; their population has declined precipitously more than once. They have left a cultural legacy that has brought them fame disproportionate to their population.

    The large stone statues, or Moai, for which Easter Island is world-famous, were carved from 1,100-1,680 CE. A total of 887 monolithic stone statues have been inventoried on the island and in museum collections so far.  Although often identified as "Easter Island heads", the statues are actually complete torsos, the figures kneeling on bent knees with their hands over their stomachs. Some upright Moai have become buried up to their necks by shifting soils.

    This Moai head sculpture has been sold. However, you can custom order another. The price is $39000. A down payment of $13000 is required to start the project. We will send pictures of the carving process to you.  After completion and you have seen pictures and are satisfied we require full payment and the Moai sculpture will be shipped to you.  The Moai will take approximately 7-10 months to carve.  Please call us (760) 994-4455 or email us info@lotussculpture.com with any questions.  A impressive Moai sculpture like this is worth waiting for!

    About Pink Granite:
      Pink granite is seldom used in sculpture in south India.  Lotus Sculpture has acquired pink granite stone solely for a limited number of Moai statues.  The Moai's smooth surfaces really show off the beauty of the stone.  Like Indian black granite it is possible to see 4-5 different colors on a single piece depending on the degree of polish or roughness of the stone.  The stone is extremely hard and durable and can be left outside in extreme heat and extreme cold for years without care.
