New York, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
New York based retailer Buddha Groove has expanded its line of artistic statues with several new designs, new materials and new portrayals of Buddha, the world-renowned teacher, philosopher and spiritual leader. Buddha Groove’s unique collection now includes over 150 varieties of indoor and outdoor statues in a variety of artistic renderings.
Buddha Groove’s most popular statues depict Buddha seated in the lotus position, a pose which reflects Buddha’s “absolute stillness and inner harmony.” In this pose the Buddha hands are seen across his lap in a variety of hand gestures, or mudras, which reflect various principles and virtues such as kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and healing. Additional popular sellers includes a series of “resting” Buddha statues, in which he almost appears to be sleeping, or an interesting version known as the weeping Buddha, which shows the strong figure crouched into a ball, sobbing over the troubles of the world.
Buddha Groove explains that after artistic style, the most important factor their customers consider is the material used for each statue. For Buddha garden statues and outdoor decor, stone and ceramic are very popular choices, as the material and colors can withstand extremes of temperature and climate. For indoors statues, when exposure to the elements is not a factor, customers are treated to a much more diverse selection of resin creations, glasswork statues, and statues made of metals such as iron, white copper and brass.
Buddha Groove also explains that its selection of statues is not for devout Buddhists only. Because Buddhism can be seen as both a philosophy and as a religion, anyone who is interested in spiritual growth and personal development can find value and appreciation for Buddha’s teachings without having a specific spiritual background in eastern teachings. Also, because his perfect form and serene gaze are so widely studied and admired, the likeness of Buddha often attracts individuals who are the most sensitive to artistic expression and creative statements. Many of Buddha Groove’s statues cater to this clientele, especially with its most recent addition of a glittering glass mosaic statue that depicts the Buddha in abstract lines and minimalist form.
Buddha Groove expects to add several new works in 2013 from artists residing all over the globe. Visit their online store to keep up with the latest in Buddha statue designs.
