Description A beautiful set of antique Mahogany wood, Indian pillars!  The pair of pillars was reclaimed from a home in Tamil Nadu, India.  The pillars were painted over with dark stain.  We then stripped the old paint off and refinished the wood so one can see the rich veins within the wood of the pillars.  New brass plated bands are furnished around the top of the pillar along with the dark wood capitals on the top of the pillars.  The capitals have four spouts facing all four directions carved with yalis in them.  Yalis are mythical beasts made from a combination of animals, often alligators, tigers and peacocks.  There are small, tear shaped drops on the ends of each of the spouts. 
The pillars would be an amazing if incorporated into a building structure for achieving a stunning Indian feel to any space.
Care

"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 [email protected]
