Buddha Statues are carvings of Siddhartha Gautama, known as the historical Buddha. You will love the quality and attention to detail that are put in to these statues, and you will find the perfect sculptures for your home or garden. Being a Buddhist woman from Thailand myself, I would proudly have any of these sculptures on our own altar table or in our garden. You will be happy to know that you can find the same Buddhist images on our site for less than half the price on other web sites.
You will find stone, Metal, Wood and Resin carvings of Shakyamuni Buddha. There are many different Buddha Poses (known as attitudes or postures), and also the hands will depict a specific Mudra (hand gesture), which signifies an aspect of the Buddha.
These statues are made from a variety of different materials. In Thailand and India artists tend to prefer making metal sculptures, and many Buddha rupas are made of polished brass and have shiny gold color (similar to a trumpet or other brass musical instrument), and copper (generally darker, like the color of an aged penny). Stone carvings are more common from Bali, Indonesia, where lava stone is a very common material, but Indian stone figures will generally be made from lime stone or sand stone. Throughout much of Southeast Asia you can still find wood Carvings (usually Rosewood, Suar, or Mango wood), and Resin (which is usually painted or tinted a dark color) is also used, although it is most often used in Thai or Chinese figures. Less common materials are ceramics and porcelains, usually finished in white, which are common for Chinese style images (especially for Statues of the Bodhisattva Kuan Yin).
