  • This antique wood panel depicts the Hindu Goddess of wealth amidst a full procession of attendants
  • Lakshmi is flanked by two rearing elephants with their trunks raised (a sign of good fortune) with a gana or dwarf squating below her and two heavely angles or apsaras flying above her, in this pose she is known as Gaja Lakshmi or elephant Lakshmi
  • Lakshmi is seated in the lalitasana position with her right leg hanging down while holding two lotus flowers, symbols of beauty, prosperity and fertility with her other two hands open in the abhaya mudra or "fear not" hand position of divine protection and varada mudra which is a boon granting hand position, with garlands draped over her shoulders
  • The panel is very thick for a panel and has many more detailed elements than one would find a contemporary wood wall panel carved in India, for its small size the piece has an abundant amount of fine detail!
"Gaja" in Sanskrit means elephant. The seated figure of Lakshmi is flanked by two elephants. The two elephants have there trunks raised in greeting. Lakshmi is sometimes depicted in painting with two white elephants surrounding her. The white elephants are a symbol of fertility and strength.

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]
