Background / History: We purchased this statue in Indonesia, where it was crafted by local artists, and shipped it to its current location in Boulder County, CO.

Specific Details: This Buddha statue is sculpted from a dense Javanese river stone. The artist's finishing touch was to apply a multilayer stain finish leaving the statue with a magnificent, dark patina. Buddha is depicted adorned with a masterfully carved, infinitely detailed Javanese Batik robe...complete with a large, inspiring lotus flower on the back! This is an Indonesian masterpiece sculpture, meticulously carved by hand from a single, solid piece of rock using chisel and mallet. This statue will make a beautiful centerpiece in any location. The proportions and detail of this hand carved statue are unique, accurate and clean. This piece of art is of temple quality and, when properly cared for, can last hundreds if not thousands of years.
