About Karuppu Sami: Karuppu Sami is a regional Tamil deity prevalent in rural areas of Tamil Nadu and parts of Kerala, India. His devotees affectionately call him Karuppu Sami or Karuppannaswami, which translates to the 'Black God' in Tamil. He is widely revered as a guardian deity, who protects the rural communities and is often considered a demigod with prophetic powers.

Karuppu Sami is traditionally represented with dark skin, riding a white horse with a large curved knife or sword, and a gada or club, symbolizing his power and authority. His facial features are typically striking, with a mustache that curls upward at both ends and a tall full bun atop his head.

His worship often involves folk music, dance, and ritualistic performances unique to the rural communities of the region. Karuppu Sami is known for his swift justice and is invoked by devotees who seek protection against evil and want justice. He is often seen as a symbol of hope for those who face injustices.

Karuppu Sami is also associated with fertility and prosperity, reflecting the importance of agricultural prosperity for the rural communities. His statues are commonly found in open spaces and are an essential part of village guardian deities' temples throughout Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

About Black Granite:  Indian black granite is a wonderful stone. It is capable of a variety of finishes which can give it a variety of different color possibilities. It is possible to see 4-5 different colors on a single piece depending on the degree of polish or roughness of the stone. Indian black granite is among the best granite in the world sought after by artists globally. Unlike inferior quality granite, Indian granite is extremely dense and without impurities that plague other stones. The density of granite makes a granite sculpture perfect for any garden because it can be left outside in extreme heat and extreme cold for years without care.


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

Granite statues from India do not need much maintenance. The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating. They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use

You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically
go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.

Soap and warm water is the best way to maintain the statue. You can use a small brush to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair.

Granite's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate. The stone can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold. We suggest you bathe the sculpture at least once a year so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture. This will maintain the sculpture for your grandchildren and then their grandchildren!
