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.

As many of you have already seen on the news, the situation in India is very dire. With over 26 million cases of COVID and close to 300 thousand deaths and counting, India’s daily death toll has hit the world’s highest and unfortunately is not showing signs of slowing any time soon.

Over the past year, I have been getting pleas from our artisans over their situation due to Covid. With no domestic customers buying statues in each country and no tourists creating any other domestic demand, their only source of revenue has been Lotus Sculpture.
