Nowhere else can you find so many high quality large sized statues. And the benefits of these fine pieces goes beyond the aesthetic and into the spiritual realm.
In Hinduism, the images of gods are not merely inanimate pieces of metal or stone. They are a vital connection between a human and the divine, holy symbols that themselves contain the force of the deities they share a likeness with. These are idols that act like portals into a higher form of consciousness. This is because, for many Indian spiritual paths, it is the direct experience of god that is sought, not mere intellectual understanding of a belief system. In this way, statuary goes beyond decoration. Instead, it seeks to connect us at all times with the forces that create, maintain, and reclaim the world we live in. As in Murthi worship, a large garden statue can give you a place to return to, to remind yourself of the presence of divinity in your life. By reconnecting with this in your everyday life, you can begin to see this presence everywhere and at all times.
We provide these large Indian statues to bring you an experience of the divine right in your home or garden like never before. Our collection contains a comprehensive selection of avatars and gods for you to contemplate, worship, and share your space with. From Bhagawan Krishna to Lord Nataraja, from Ganesha to Bhogashakti, there is a statue for every path.

does size influence our appreciation of a sculpture?
Size in art matters
because of its power to impact the way audiences respond. There's something
about large-scale objects that affect our intuitive senses and emotions,
