This is a really nice fountain, very attractive and makes a nice sound. I have it inside the house, and was concerned about water splatter. It does splatter out about a foot, but I have it on tile and in several hours it only splatters out an amount that's easy to wipe up. The rustic look really blends nicely in my decor. One thing, it did arrive in a damaged box with one of the drip-shelves broken off. It is heavy, would be really hard to repack and send back plus we wanted it working for an event. I was able to reattach the drip shelf with Tough as Nails and keep the damaged fountain, and you cannot tell it was ever broken.
Love this fireplace!!! The quality, price, looks, ease of assembly and timely shipping. Pictures don't do it justice. So much better looking in person. I was afraid it would look cheap and fake. It's so nice. You will not regret this purchase!
When I got this item in the mail, I was surprised at how heavy it really was. I liked the fact that the bottom of the statue had felt pads to avoid any scratching of any surface you put it on. The size was exactly as stated in the listing too. I think this was prettier in person than what the picture shows. They send it carbon free which was nice as well for the environment. The packaging was really good to avoid any chips or damage to the statue. This item can inside a home or outside. I put mine inside since I thought it was so pretty to begin with. I am happy with this purchase on overstock.com and I have already received a few compliments from others coming into my home. Thanks overstock!
Overstock has some of the best quality Jizo statues available in the U.S. I have purchased three different designs by Indonesia's Nyoman Suriani from Overstock. Each has been an outstanding addition to my gardens. I have given them as gifts to friends. They look great displayed indoors and out.
I bought the Happy Buddha for my husband, who has wanted a Buddha statue to put on an empty pedestal outside the bathroom window. I ordered this one, and secretly put it on the pedestal. I waited for him to see it. The next day after his shower he came running out of the bathroom looking happier than the Buddha! It is a perfect weight, color, and "happiness". I wish it were a little bigger, but it matches the size specified on your website, so I knew what I was getting. We are both very pleased, and it makes us happy when we look at it everyday! Shipment was quick, packing was good, and overall my experience was excellent. I will not hesitate to rder from you again!
I had a Buddha for many years and it broke in a move. It took me a while to find one that I liked the demeanor of and this one is just right. Its also quite big so its nice and substantial. The color and material looks authentic. Overstock had the best price on it too.
Overall, I'm happy with these. However, note that the color is much darker and more of a taupe/gray than pictured. More of an even finish. Eventually I may do a paint wash over them to add more dimension.
Measure the area where you are considering these, they are large! I needed a large wall hanging so they worked out great for where I put them.
I received this item and it was just slightly cracked on the side but not enough to see however it's truly more beautiful in person than in the picture ! It's not necessary to return it back because it's not noticeable . It was made very well and it is very heavy . I am very pleased .
Very easy to put together, quick & fun. All the pieces came with it. The copper bowl is light and thin, but it gives a metallic sound when thunked and it is not plastic.
I have it set on a strawberry planter outside on a deck, to raise it up higher. The light is fairly bright but not obnoxious, because the bulb sits slightly below the top slate piece. The light is only white, which I am glad for because I have several color changing ones in my yard and garish colors would ruin the "zen" nature of this piece. Both slate disks have a nice greenish hue to them. The little fountain of water that splashes up is the only part affected by the light.
I have the fountain set on medium, and the water from the fountain pump shoots up a good couple inches. It splashes a little but not bad. When the weather turns cold we will bring it indoors, and hoping with the setting on "low" the water won't splash outside the bowl. The only thing I wish is that the control for the pump were not on the very bottom of the apparatus. You need to take the fountain apart to get to the control to change the setting. I had a box full of lovely polished agates & other large colorful stones gifted to me by my grandfather when I was little. I am using them in the fountain. The included stones were ok, smooth pale yellow or tan stones. My gorgeous agates dress up the fountain. It is beautiful and very peaceful sounding - even just on medium it makes a substantial water sound. I don't hear the pump at all. I was able to ramp up the babbling brook sound a bit by changing the placement & size of stones that sit right underneath the top fountain of water.
In the daytime the light is still on but not noticeable.
One suggestion - don't be so impatient to see the fountain in action that you neglect to give the bowl, slate pieces & any rocks you use a good wash prior to setting up the fountain. I didn't do this & had a lot of visible dust circulating in the fountain after starting it. I just flushed it out with enough water to clear the water, it looks fine now.
This is a must have for my area of serenity in my yard. It has withstood hurricane seasons, rain, wind and debris flying about. The volcanic ash is strong and it has not faded in the Southern sun. I am pondering purchasing another.
This is the second piece of volcanic ash / cement work I've ordered and they both look very good and the quality of the forms is consistent with good Buddhist art and not like some modern versions of the Kwan Yin.
I will buy more of this item. I have bought several different designs of Jizos by Indonesia's Nyoman Suriani from Overstock. They look great displayed indoors and out. I've searched the web for different Jizo designs and these are some of the finest available and the price can't be beat. They make great gifts and would be a welcome addition to anyone's garden.
This gave our office the exact feel we were looking for. Watch out for the height of the outlet you place behind it. We ended up needing to move ours up and rewire. to have the fountain at the right level on the wall. We run it all day, everyday. Maintenance seems fairly simple so far.
It was a challenge to put together. The pump kept falling apart. It is beautiful but I don't know if I would order again. The stone has a crack in the corner, you have to really watch the water it evaporates fast.
Disappointed by color as it was purchased to place by garden pagoda. But the tranquility of this Buddha has made it the best pose I have seen. Because of the tan/brown color, it doesn't stand out as I had hoped but it is just the right Buddha for a peaceful garden spot!
It is really nice and was a perfect size for the area I placed it. I love the sound of the water it is extremely relaxing and calming. I did have to place with the set up to keep the light from shining so bright into your eyes and I added extra rocks.
