  • This exact sculpture of Dhakshinamurthi has been sold, however, you can custom order another, the price is $19500, a down payment of $9500 is required to start the project
I extol Dakshinamurthy, the handsome youth who has transmitted the truth of Parabrahm by silent speech; who is surrounded by a host of venerable sages as disciples, all absorbed and established in meditation upon Brahman; who is the Supreme Teacher; who displays the sacred sign of fusion of the soul with the Absolute -- the joining of forefinger and thumb -- the paragon of bliss; who has a resplendent face replete with the rapture of the Self-Existent.

This exact sculpture of Dhakshinamurthi has been sold. However, you can custom order another. The price is $19500. A down payment of $9500 is required to start the project. We will send pictures of the carving process to you.  After completion and you have seen pictures and are satisfied we require full payment and teaching Shiva will be shipped to you.  Dhakshinamurthi will take approximately 1year to carve.  A Shiva like this is worth waiting for!

A colossal piece!  This massive depiction of the south facing Lord is inspiring.  To sit at Shiva's feet and look up at Him forces deep inner contemplation.

The iconic representation of Dakshinamurthy represents Shiva, seated under a banyan tree in silence inspiring the Sanakaadi rishis.  Dakshinamurthy is portrayed as being in the yogic state of abstract meditation and as a powerful form brimming with ever flowing bliss and supreme joy.   The fifth day of the week, Thursday is associated with the planet Jupiter and is referred to as Guru-Vaaram. It is on Thursdays that special worship services are offered to Dakshinamurthy in many Saivite temples. Some temple traditions hold full moon nights, particularly the night of the Guru Poornima as the appropriate time for worship services to Dakshinamurthy.

About Indian 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!
