Item Description

 

DharmaCraft's Indo-Asian style garden statue depicts Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion, resting in the posture of royal ease. This bodhisattva assumed many forms in Buddhist art as Buddhism traveled across the Asian continent. Originating in India as a male bodhisattva, Avalokiteshvara gradually transformed into the female bodhisattva known as Kuan Yin during the 10th century in China. In Tibet, this bodhisattva is known as Chenrezig. 

DharmaCrafts' Buddhist statues for the garden are hand cast in resin, a remarkably durable substance that has become the material of choice for producing garden ornaments. Resin has the appearance of metal and the feel of wood. It is much lighter in weight than concrete and offers heightened detail.

We chose a beautiful rust patina for the statues in this collection and allowed them to weather for several weeks prior to photographing them. They are appropriately placed both outdoors in the garden or indoors.

Originally carved by village craftspeople in Bali, the statues are cast and finished in California according to strict state environmental regulations. 

Inspiration for your meditation practice and everyday life. Since 1979, the Buddhist and mindfulness meditation community has relied on DharmaCrafts for quality meditation supplies. They make it easy to create a tranquil meditation room in your home with their exclusive line of handcrafted meditation cushions that are made in Massachusetts.
