Lotus Sculpture is proud to announce a partnership with the Chopra Center Marketplace, located at the La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California, to sell one-of-a-kind, handcrafted Hindu God and Buddha statues, produced directly from Asian artisans.
“We are overjoyed to showcase some of our select statuary alongside inspirational products from such a renowned thinker and healer as Deepak Chopra, M.D.,” said Kyle Tortora, Founder of Lotus Sculpture. “The Chopra Center’s theme of ‘heal, balance, and transform’ aligns with our vision to provide the highest quality, hand-made Asian sculptures to Hindus, Buddhists and art lovers all over the world.”
The Chopra Center for Wellbeing, founded by Deepak Chopra, M.D. and David Simon, M.D., two of the world’s foremost leaders in the field of mind-body medicine, is revolutionizing common wisdom about the crucial connection between body, mind, spirit, and healing. The center provides meditation, emotional wellbeing workshops, and yoga retreats across the country and offers products designed to educate, enlighten, and inspire.
Lotus Sculpture is an importer of the finest Hindu God and Buddha statues from India, Thailand, Bali, Cambodia and Nepal, with a collection crafted from bronze, brass, marble, stone, and wood. Over the eleven years in business, owner, Kyle Tortora has developed close relationships with Asian artisans, who have been practicing the craft for generations. He continues to personally select and help design each piece, thus ensuring the best quality, while allowing the artists to receive fair price for their work. Giving life to a once-struggling industry, Tortora has seen many small two-person, family workshops grow to employ 50 artists and directly sell to Lotus Sculpture.
The statues that have been individually selected for display at the Chopra Center Marketplace include the Zen Meditating Buddha; Lord Ganesh, remover of obstacles; Lord Shiva, Hindu god of destruction and Hindu god Lord Krishna. Not only are the sculptures available for sale at the Chopra Center, some also go on tour with Deepak on meditation and spiritual retreats. Specifically, the meditating postures of the statues are highlighted at these events.
Lotus Sculpture is an online gallery, now with a showroom, located at 1834 Ord Way in Oceanside, CA.
