Introducing an exceptional handcrafted Brass Shiva Statue, encapsulated within a beautifully carved natural wood alcove. This piece is a testament to the exquisite craftsmanship of Indonesian artisans, capturing the ethereal essence of Lord Shiva in a detailed representation that resonates with spiritual energy.

The statue features Lord Shiva in a meditative state, seated with regal poise, encapsulating his role as the destroyer and restorer within the cycle of life. His hair is crowned with a cobra and a crescent moon, which signify the flow of the life force and the cyclical nature of the universe.

With four arms, each carrying its own profound symbolism, the statue conveys a narrative of divinity and cosmic law. The front right hand in the abhaya mudra offers protection from fear and reassurance to devotees, while the backhand holds a trident, representing Shiva's strength and the three aspects of existence: creation, preservation, and destruction. The drum in his back left hand symbolizes the rhythm of life and the passage of time, whereas the front left hand's gentle pose reflects a balance of action and stillness.

Encircling his neck is a cobra, a symbol of consciousness and power. Each detail from the mala beads to the lotus flower contributes to the statue's intricate aesthetics, imbued with layers of spiritual significance.

The natural wood alcove, serving as a rustic throne for Shiva, provides a contrast to the smooth, green patina of the brass, a hallmark of Javanese antique-style brass statues. This alcove not only frames Lord Shiva's figure but also integrates him into the natural world, symbolizing his omnipresence.

Resting upon a solid wood base, this Brass Shiva statue is a piece of art that invites a sense of peace and meditation into any space. It is a splendid addition for those who seek to infuse their environment with a touch of divine inspiration and serenity.


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
Shiva the Destroyer (Sanskrit: Auspicious One), or Siva, is one of the main Deities of Hinduism, worshipped as the paramount lord by the Saivite sects of India. Shiva is one of the most complex gods of India, embodying seemingly contradictory qualities. He is the destroyer and the restorer, the great ascetic and the symbol of sensuality, the benevolent herdsman of souls and the wrathful avenger.
Shiva was originally known as Rudra, a minor deity addressed only three times in the Rig Veda.  He gained importance after absorbing some of the characteristics of an earlier fertility god and became Shiva, part of the trinity, or trimurti, with Vishnu and Brahma.
Shiva wears a snake coiled around his upper arms and neck symbolizing the power he has over the most deadly of creatures. Snakes are also used to symbolize the Hindu dogma of reincarnation. Their natural process of molting or shedding their skin is symbolic of the human soul's transmigration of bodies from one life to another.
Shiva's female consort and wife is Parvati; because of his generosity and reverence towards Parvati, Shiva is considered an ideal role model for a husband. The divine couple together with their sons - the six-headed Skanda and the elephant headed Ganesh - reside on Mount Kailasa in the Himalayas. 
His guardian is Nandi (the white bull), whose statue can often be seen watching over the main shrine.  The bull is said to embody sexual energy, fertility.  Riding on its back, Shiva is in control of these impulses.
He often holds a trident, which represents the Hindu trinity of Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu.  It is also said to represent the threefold qualities of nature: creation, preservation and destruction, although preservation is usually attributed to Vishnu.
As the destroyer, Shiva is dark and terrible, encircled with serpents and a crown of skulls.
Shiva often wears sacred Rudaksha beads, perhaps a reference to his earlier name Rudra.
The crescent moon Shiva wears on his crown, besides being a symbol of Kama the goddess of nightly love, also represents the bull, Nandi, a fertility symbol.
Shiva holds a skull that represents samsara, the cycle of life, death and rebirth.  Samsara is a central belief in Hinduism.  Shiva himself also represents this complete cycle because he is Mahakala, the Lord of Time, destroying and creating all things.
Shiva is represented in a variety of forms.  One such form is as a lingam.  The ovoid shape is a representation of the absolute perfection of Lord Shiva - if that which is beyond form had to be given form, the lingam would be the closest form to the mystical experience of the absolute perfection of Shiva.   Shiva is often pictured in a pacific mood with his consort Parvati, as the cosmic dancer Nataraja, as a naked ascetic, as a mendicant beggar, as a yogi, and as the androgynous union of Shiva and Parvati in one body (Ardhanarisvara).
Another example of Shiva's apparent synthesis of male and female attributes is seen in his earrings.  He wears one earring in the style of a man and the other as a female.
Shiva's third eye is a symbol of higher consciousness.  It is also a weapon he uses to destroy his enemies by emitting a fire missile which has the power to incinerate the three worlds.  He can also kill all the gods and other creatures during the periodic destruction of the universe.  Shiva's third eye first appeared when Parvati, his wife, playfully covered his other two eyes, so Shiva opened his third eye emitting his destructive missile endangering the three worlds.
