    Lotus Sculpture adds to the beauty of life! - 1.22.2015

    Lotus Sculpture has the most beautiful statues in the world. There is definitely a chemistry between the statues, the team at Lotus Sculpture and the purchaser. Receiving our Umbrella Ganesh was memorable. Our dream of having this statue was fulfilled. Kyle offered such a great price for it. A truly beautiful piece by the amazingly talented artists of India, who sculpted him. It's a labor of love. I am convinced that Kyle Tortora was divinely chosen to spread the love that each statue brings to its owners. We named Umbrella Ganesh Mr. G. after our station weatherman. Lord Ganesh will keep an eye on the weather for all of us! Thanks Lotus Sculpture! You add to the beauty of life! Steven Olsen and Jenny Wolkowicki New Jersey

Thank you so very much for your time and consideration! Kimberly and I wish you and yours all the best in 2015! Sincerely, John John Warrington

    My daughter loved her Buddha, best Christmas gift! - 12.26.2014

    I bought the garden Buddha for my daughter for Christmas. It is a beautiful sculpture. The entire process of ordering from the web site, which was a great web site, and receiving the sculptures in plenty of time for Christmas morning was perfect. It was truly a great gift to give her and she absolutely loved it. Forget the newest technology, a serene and beautiful sculpture is a wonderful way to gift someone you love.

    Wonderful transaction! The statue is better than the photo suggested. I am also looking for a 13-15 inch Dancing Shiva, but have had no such luck. Help me?

    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

    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 [email protected] 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.
