Garden Buddha On A Lotus Blossom Statue
This is an "antique" finish Garden Buddha with Lotus Blossoms Statue, which stands approximately 9 inches tall. This Garden statue depictions the Buddha sitting on a lotus blossoms on the robes of The Buddha, as the lotus is a symbol of purity associated with the Buddha and Buddhism. These statues are made from basalt, which is comprised of crushed volcanic rock (these statues are made in Indonesia where they have PLENTY of volcanic rock). But the "antique" finish helps to make this a great garden Buddha, since the statue looks as if it has already been outdoors for many years. Plus the statue has a weatherized rubber base, so it is fine for both indoors and out. The Buddha is depicted in the pose of meditation, and the legs are in the Single Lotus position (meaning one leg rests upon the other, as opposed to having the legs "locked" together). The statue measures 8 and 1/2 inches tall, by 7 inches wide, by 4 inches deep.
