  • Adorned in flowing robes, the founder of Zen and Chan Buddhism, Bodhidharma stands mightily holding an alms bowl and a grand staff, symbolizing his monastic journey
  • A stunning contrast is evident, with light, natural burl wood seamlessly transitioning to a rich, dark sculpted Bodhidharma above
  • His iconic stern expression, vast beard, and pronounced chest reflect an embodiment of strength, determination, and unwavering commitment
  • Encircling him, a masterfully carved flaming arch intensifies the atmosphere, invoking spiritual energy and protection
  • Bodhidharma is hand carved by the wood artist, Thuong in Vietnam and completely one of a kind, you will receive this exact statue in your order
Unveiling a masterpiece that artfully blends the raw beauty of nature with intricate craftsmanship, this hand-carved Vietnamese wood statue is a representation of the revered monk, Bodhidharma. Carved from a distinct live edge burl wood, the bottom's light-hued, natural grain exquisitely contrasts with the dark, detailed depiction of Bodhidharma above. This striking play of colors adds an additional layer of depth and aesthetic appeal to the sculpture.

Bodhidharma, known as the founder of the Chan school of Buddhism in China, which later evolved into Zen in Japan, is a symbol of unwavering dedication to the spiritual path. His portrayal holding an alms bowl signifies his renunciation of worldly attachments, while the large staff is emblematic of his long, arduous journey spreading Zen teachings. The iconic stern face, complemented by a grand beard and defined chest, embodies the discipline and strength of this legendary monk.

Surrounding the figure is a beautifully detailed flaming arch, often a symbol of spiritual energy, protection, and transformation in Buddhist iconography. This adds not only an artistic dimension but also an atmosphere of sacredness to the statue.

For those keen on spiritual artifacts, this statue is not merely an artistic representation but a tangible connection to a legacy of profound wisdom and enlightenment. It serves as a reminder of the determination of Bodhidharma and the essence of Zen teachings, making it a perfect addition to sanctified spaces and an enlightening conversation piece.

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
The use of a wood polish will keep the wood looking fresh and the colors vibrant.

Wood statues are easy to take care of as they just need some annual upkeep to keep them looking as they did when they were first carved. All the wood used by Lotus Sculpure's artists is dried out for months. Moisture causes cracks in the sculpture as the wood contracts and expands in different temperatures. Our wood has little to no moisture in it assuring that the sculpture is not going to crack in its journey into different climates. Here are some simple tips to keep your statue in good condition:

  • Dust the statue as needed to prevent dirt build up
  • To make the statue shine use a natural wood cleaner and a cotton cloth to buff the sculpture

We prefer Old English to polish and buff our statues. The use of a wood polish like Old English will keep the wood looking fresh and keep the colors looking vibrant. For natural wood and painted wooden statues we recommend Old English for lighter woods. For darker wood statues we recommend Old English for darker woods. Lotus Sculpture cleans and polishes each wooden statue prior to shipping them to the customer.

We recommend keeping wooden statues in an indoor environment. Wood statues can go outside however, they will wear more quickly and develop an antique appearance. If you would like to put a wood statue from Lotus Sculpture outside and keep the same appearance of the sculpture we would recommend first coating the statue with a couple of layers of sealant or polyurethane. We would then recommend placing the statue in a partially covered area. The more exposure to the elements the more the statue will wear over time. Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions regarding your wooden statue from Lotus Sculpture, (760) 994-4455 or [email protected].
