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!
Great serene face.. Friend loved it.. Great addition to his buddha collection.. Put it next to his bed...
The Stone Buddha Face Statue.I like the Face of the Buddha .It look good by the pond.
this buddah face is very sweet and tranquil and it looks as if it were hand carved in natural stone and not caste. It was a very good value at the price. I have mine in a Japanese Garden resting up against a larger stone of the same color near some live bamboo. And it is such a joy to lok out the glass door from my office and see the buddha face. It reminds me daily to take a deep breath and be calm all day long..
My husband and I collect statues of the Buddha. With our anniversary coming up, I was looking for something different to give him. I found this Buddha head on Overstock.com and had to have it- it's reminiscent of stumbling across an old ruin in the jungle. It's a wonderful looking piece, nice and heavy so it won't get blown away, and will look wonderful in our garden. I'm very happy with my purchase and, more to the point, my husband loves it!
Very nice design, not too big. Can tuck into a corner of your garden to add that serene touch. Cast stone with a flat base to allow to stand as pictured.
I put my Buddha in the living-room and I love it. It looks great and the stone color matches with the stone color sofa and I put accent color plows which gives the room a very nice zen feeling. Get it its really nice and has a great weight to it.
I was disappointed to open this box and see that the size is mis-stated. The head actually measures 9 inches tall and 8 inces wide, not 12 inches as stated in description. Other than that it is identical to the picture- just feel I paid too much for something so small- intended to place in garden, but now feel it may get 'lost.' Cannot recommend due to size disparity, otherwise okay.
Purchased this item as a gift that was shipped cross-country directly to the recipient - will be able to see it in person when I visit in late March. The recipient absolutely loved the Buddha statue, and was amazed at how heavy it was. Had a hard time deciding where to display the statue, as it looked great in several different areas of the house - I believe it finally ended up in the living room, and I've been told that it has received many compliments from friends...can't wait to see it for myself! Thanks, Overstock, for a great item!
The Buddah face sits on the hill outside my window. It blends into the hillside with the rocks. When I see it laying there it makes me smile. It is a lovely surprise.
I will keep it but I'm a little disappointed it's not a full head. It's really a nice piece for a garden though. Volcanic ash is very fragile. Don't know about getting it wet. It's base is narrow so it's not stable standing alone.
This is a beautiful stone Buddha face. It sits well and is nicely detailed. Would look good in either the garden or inside, which is where I currently have mine. I am considering purchasing another one for my summer gardens. A good, quality purchase!
this is a solid grey material used in making this buddha face, there is much in the attention to details in the face also. I like the fact that it also has bottom pads if want to be used indoors it won't scratch your furniture. Would make a great gift for some ones home
The online photo makes this Buddha head look really large because of the way is it positioned far in front of the flowers. The size is actually the 12 inches stated (diagonally) and the width is about 7 inches. The head is scooped out in the back, it doesn't go all the way around so it needs to be positioned so the back of the head isn't really seen. I can't remember if the description says it is carved but I believe it to be cast cement type stuff with a "mud wash". I really do like this piece and will find a good place to put it when I need contemplation time.
The stone Buddha face is front and center in my garden. It sets the tone. I love it. Very pleased with this purchase, Its different.
I have not put this out in our garden yet but wanted to say that I am happy with the look of this item. It is a good weight and the back side is flattened so that I think it will be easily worked into the garden. I like the look of this item.
I bought this for a gift for my boyfriend. He loves it. The quality is amazing and it has such a tranquility in the expression. I'd be interested in any other products this stone mason has done also.
I can't believe I forgot to reveiew this item. It was purchased as a house warming gift for my friend who bought a beach house at the NJ shore. Needless to say at this point in time, Hurricane Sandy did her worse. The Buddha face withstood her wrath, the flooding etc...The face was left outside prior to the storm and it is intact! I think that speks volumes of its durability. I think it is great...
looks lovely in garden. Do have to be sure to steady it -- base not completely flat.
I wanted this for my entry way to my house but it keeps falling over in the garden. I think I need to place it better, as it looks a little goofy right now. It would help if it were surrounded by greenery or ivy, otherwise it seems a little awkward. I have a Buddha collection mostly for the Peace it imparts and my love of the Orient but most of my others are much nicer. I like it enough to not return but its a bit unstable for garden art, better to have it on a coffee table or shelf, which would work fine. I love Overstock, it is a decent and wonderful company to do business with. Wish more would follow suit.
