The Lotus Sculpture Community
Lotus Sculpture has been a tight knit community since 2000 when we took our first buying trip to India and started meeting the artisans who are the core of who we are today. Lotus Sculpture is so appreciative of our customers! Without you we would not be able to support our artisans and these beautiful sculptures would not be finding homes in the far reaches of the world!
We are a small, unique business that puts people in front of profits, life long relationships in front of making a dollar.
We invite you to become an active member of the Lotus Sculpture community. Please post, tweet Facebook, debate, and rate away! Tell us and tell the world what is on your mind.

On my buying trip to India in February I made it a point to visit the people who we donated rice to during the covid lockdown. I wanted to meet them, hear their stories, and see first hand if we touched their lives in any way.
It has been 16 years since I first visited Nepal. Lotus Sculpture has never imported any statues from Nepal so this past week was like a buying trip 20 years ago, exploring Kathmandu valley and searching for new artisans with exceptional statues.
Greetings from India! It’s been over two years since I’ve been back to Asia. I can’t wait to share with you the amazing treasures I’ve found!
