This amazing sculpture was hand carved from the trunk and root system of a tree.  There are two Buddhas carved into the tree, the Buddha in the upper section of the tree is seated on a lotus in lalita asana, a pose of ease with one leg pendant and resting on a lotus flower.  Beneath his right foot is a beautiful blooming lotus flower.  Lord Buddha's gossamer robes lie naturally over his body and cover his legs.  His right hand is outstretched naturally to his right while his left hand is held up to his chest.  He has a thoughtful countenance with closed eyes and well defined lips.  His nose and both hands are all a lighter shade of wood, this gradation is natural to the wood because the closer to the outside of the tree the lighter the wood becomes.

The second laying Buddha located in the lower portion of the tree is masterfully carved to incorporate the beginning of the roots of the tree.  His long legs are carved from the roots while his body is part of the trunk.  The Buddha's long body is lounging comfortably on lily pads that surround the base of the sculpture.  His right hand is in the jnana mudra or teaching gesture, while his left hand is tucked behind him in support.  His face is delicate and peaceful.  The face is entirely a lighter shade of wood, which really brings out the beauty of the Buddha's face and frames it perfectly with the dark hair. 

Surrounding the base are more beautifully carved lily pads and a blooming flowers.  Some of the roots are sanded down in order to make them smooth.  The back of the sculpture is left in a more natural state, the knots of the tree are left raw which really adds a special dimension to the carving.  

Only master artisans are entrusted to carve tree sculptures because they must use the natural curves and contours of the tree to create there vision.  The vision of the artist is apparent in how he chooses to place the Buddha's hands and how he elected to keep the natural knots of the statue and incorporate them into the front portion of the piece.  Rather than making the whole statue smooth, he kept the knots in some places which contrasts beautifully with the smooth surface of the carving.  Overall a magnificent sculpture!

This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the artists of Bali, Indonesia.
I always say to our customers; The sculpture chooses you, you do not choose the sculpture.
You just know when you find the right piece to bring into your home and into your heart.
- Kyle Tortora, Founder of Lotus Sculpture
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].

The delivery charges include insurance, a residential lift gate delivery to your home or business. The freight company will call you to schedule a delivery day and time frame to make the delivery. Someone must be present to receive the statue. Depending on where you are located we will use either R&L Carriers, UPS Freight, Estes, DHX or Roadrunner Transport.
The freight company will use a lift gate to bring the sculpture to the ground and then use a pallet jack to move it anywhere on the same level. They will move it anywhere in your driveway or in your garage. They will not take it to your backyard or in the elevator to your apartment or up or down any steps. They will not be unpacking the statue and taking the crate away. Think of them as you would UPS or Fedex. They only deliver the statue. If you require a little extra service, (within reason) a tip to a delivery man usually works wonders!
For placing the statue our customers have either placed the statue themselves with help of a friend and a tool like a hand truck or a dolly. Or by contacting their landscaper who is used to moving large and heavy objects like rocks and trees into place. For much larger and heavier sculptures sometimes the customer needs a piece of heavy equipment for placing the statue like a crane or forklift.
