I am so thrilled with the quality of the garden buddha sculpture! It is solid and of significant weight, and it looks perfect in a corner of my garden. I have an antique buddha in my house, purchased years ago from Indonnesia, and one would have to be an expert to tell the difference between the genuine antique and my new buddha.
I echo the other reviews--this is a beautiful sculpture. I ordered the white one and have it sitting in a minimalist landscape. It's sitting on polished, black river rock in a bed of yellow Japanese forest grass and purple coral bells. The smaller size works perfectly in this particular area of my garden. The sculpture is made of a heavy, quality, textured stone; and intricately carved detail. If you've been looking for a buddha sculpture in this size, grab this one. You won't be disappointed.
zI very much like this Buddha. It is a nice size for sitting on a planter or shelf which can hold a relatively heavy object. figure is very black so you do need to really look to see the features. The statue is made of concrete and black lava which I find seriously cool. The surface is not only very black but grainy. Quite unusual for garden statues and a good way to use lava and other natural materials.
We wanted to purchase four small garden Buddha's and found this wonderful website. The pieces arrived in a few days with the total shipping only ($***) They were very well packed with no damage. I was pleased to know that the artist creates his art and supports his family. We are very, very satisfied with the whole process of ordering and delivery and product and would highly recommend this Overstock company to others.
I initially bought 1 Buddha (Antique color) to do a Buddha Garden for my friend. When the shipment arrived, I liked it so much that I ordered 2 more (another Antique & Black color) for myself and another friend. The quality of the statue is so good, it doesn't look cheap and it is quite heavy. I don't have to worry that it will topple when there is strong wind. I 'm sure a lot of my friends will also buy this once they see the Buddha Garden that i will make.
I ordered this for my outdoor garden serenity area. I like the statue, it's very serene and looks nice and seems like it should last a long time. My only comment is that it's very small. I knew it would be small but I was surprised at how small it "seems" when it's outside in a garden setting. If you're OK with that, then it's a good buy. It's also very heavy and seems to be made of black volcanic stone.
Exactly as described, including the details provided by the reviewers. Love this piece. Nice size and weight. Actually placing it in nooks in my kitchen (for now). It is so cute. Looking to have a peaceful retreat and thought a Buddhist theme would be nice. Studying to make sure I also knowledgeable, with these statues as my inspiration. I actually like the black one more that the white, as the detail is very apparent though subtle. Both are quite nice though and you should be happy with either.
I love this. Looks just like the photo. Heavy for size and nicely detailed. I have it in my home, but will also work outside as the material is stone/concrete. Highly recommend!

This was my 3rd piece I bought for the Garden from O.co and each time they get better and better. This piece looks great in the garden.
I placed this garden Buddha sculpture on the stone wall bordering my outdoor patio. He sits there as if blessing the multiple hosta plants and other perennials surrounding him. His serene presence has a calming effect on myself and any guests who join me, and I highly recommend this purchase to others!
This black stone Buddha has been gracing the window of my covered porch all summer long and it is still as stunning as the day I took it out of the box. I receive complements on its beauty all the time. He may be small and the price may seem high, but I thought it was well worth the quality of the product.
Very subtle, matte black Buddha. Cast stone with crisp details.
This sculpture is much nicer than anything else in the price range. Details are fine and the sand grains are lit by some volcanic ashes. This piece serves us indoors, but it would look fine outdoors, too.
Thanks so much for such a wonderful sculpture. I love my sculpture.
The black stone Buddha sculpture is beautiful! It is amazingly detailed and looks like a high-end piece of art. Great product! I will purchase another one for my yoga instructor!
I fully intend to use this gorgeous Buddha in my bathroom, and was delighted to find he came with cushions attached to the bottom so there'll be no scratched surfaces. He's perfectly suitable for a garden as well. He's heavy and will not get blown away or knocked over. What a great sculpture for an excellent price.
This little Buddha is so cute! I ordered the antique chocolate and it looks just like the photo. I wanted something lighter than the black so I could see some of the detail. I wasn't sure where he was going when I purchased, but he has found a home on my outdoor coffee table along with some potted grass. The contrast of the stone and greenery is wonderful. If he was bigger he would look great tucked away in my garden. Because he's not too tall, however, I was afraid he would get lost in the space. He would also be a great addition for indoors as well.
This is a beautiful statue. I bought it to put in a meditation area but it's still sitting in the living room where it looks right at home and will probably stay . I'm buying another today. It arrived well packaged and cushioned and I have not found a single flaw in it. The sharpness of the features is remarkable for a statue this small and this inexpensive. A great find.
Very attractive and jet black but at 8 inches is smaller than I had anticipated. It was likely described accurately, I was just surprised when I got it out. I have concerns that the surface will be a magnet for dust due to it's courseness but that remains to be seen. I set it up with Asian art and a lit votive and took a picture. A friend is using that picture for labels for her Artisan Soaps. She thought it was just 'perfect'. I am pleased and glad I bought it, just wish it had been bigger.
This is a very nice piece and fits the theme I had of the room I decorated. It can also be used in my patio garden and I like that it symbolizes peace and prosperity in my home.
