We would like to dedicate this blog to our favorite Buddha statues and famous Gautama Buddha quotes as well. We hope this adds a smile to your Sunday. Happy viewing!

Buddha Meditating

Meditation

“Do not look for a sanctuary in anyone except your self.”

“Meditate.
Live purely. Be quiet.
Do your work with mastery.
Like the moon, come out
from behind the clouds!
Shine.”

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”

“Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.”

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

Buddha Laughing Hoi Toi Face Garden Sculpture

Happiness

“There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.”

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

“Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind. To be happy, rest like a giant tree in the midst of them all”

“Radiate boundless love towards the entire world — above, below, and across — unhindered, without ill will, without enmity.”

Traveling Buddha

Journey

“If a traveler does not meet with one who is his better, or his equal, let him firmly keep to his solitary journey; there is no companionship with a fool.”

“It is better to travel, than to arrive”

“On life’s journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him.”

“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.” 

“Following the Noble Path is like entering a dark room with a light in the hand; the darkness will all be cleared away, and the room will be filled with light.”

George Carruth is an American sculptor who is famous for his sculptures, packed with personality and charm. Carruth has been sculpting for over thirty years; moving from sculpting as a hobby to committing to it as a career. His sculptures include vegetables , animals, holiday themes, and flowers. Almost always, his creations include a friendly face.  His sculptures are a favorite of ours at Statue.com. We wanted to share with you some of our favorites!

The Garden Plaque Collection

Garden Smile- Evolved over the years into a signature piece of sculptor Carruth. While creating this sculpture Carruth captured the best of nature and mankind in a peaceful organic format. Perfect gifts to gardeners, or simply something peaceful and serene to hang indoors. Garden Smile always give it viewer a warm winking smile makes everyone feel welcomed.

The Seasonal Collection

Bashful Bunny Sculpture-What could be more charming than a traditional bunny statue in your flower bed. Bunny statuary has always been a popular addition to natural settings. This bashful bunny quietly hides in the ivy, waiting to welcome visitors. Rabbits can get into mischief, but this stone bunny rabbit is well behaved.

War Memorial Battle Cross Boots Gun Helmet Statue

I highly recommend reading the article Sculpture Comforts Families of War Dead in USA Today. The article is about Greg Wyatt’s sculpture, “The Angel and the Dying Unknown” located on Dover Air Force Base. The sculpture is of an angel providing protection and comfort to a fallen solider, a truly beautiful and moving piece of art. In turn, this sculpture provides comfort to those loved ones grieving the loss of a service member in action.

Over the years, Statue.com has been a provider of statues for those who have lost loved ones. We offer our War Memorial Statue at just a fraction above cost. We figure it is the least we can do to show our appreciation of the ultimate debt service members and their families pay for defending our freedom.

If Tears Bench

In our gallery, you will also find memorial plaques, angels, stepping stones, and engraved benches to memorialize the lost of a loved one. We hope these sculptures provide comfort and peace to a grieving heart.

Angel Weathervane

Statue.com offers a wide variety of angelic statuary,  fountains and decor. All of our Angels have wings. However, did you know the earliest Judeo-Christian image of an angel did not have wings? Angels, as we know them, did not appear to have wings until 379-395 AD.  This important addition was noted by Saint John Chrysostom, “They manifest a nature’s sublimity. That is why Gabriel is represented with wings. Not that angels have wings, but that you may know that they leave the heights and the most elevated dwelling to approach human nature. Accordingly, the wings attributed to these powers have no other meaning than to indicate the sublimity of their nature.”  The spiritual being, an “Angel” is envisioned as sacred intermediary between mortals and the Divine. Our Gallery of Angel Statues has many sculptural depictions to small figurines to life-size angels of this comforting images.

Archangel Gabriel

In terms of their clothing, Angels are depicted in a wide variety of styles. Archangel Gabriel wears military inspired garb.  Gabriel is the Angel of annunciation, resurrection, mercy, vengeance, death and revelation. Gabriel is the ruler of heaven and ruler of the Cherubim. Gabriel is said to sit on the left hand side of God. Muhammad claimed it was Gabriel who dictated to him the Koran. In Jewish legend it was Gabriel who dealt death and destruction to Sodom and Gomorrah. Gabriel appeared to Daniel to tell him of the coming of a Messiah: a message which later he repeats to Mary in the annunciation. All of these characteristics transcend through his depicted imagery.

Praying Angel Garden Sculpture With Sculpted Roses

Other Angels in Statue.com’s collection have long flowing gowns and robes. They are often praying or shown holding a trumpet. These angles are most often considered messengers to mankind. Whatever your need, Statue.com provides a wide representation of Angelic statuary, sculptures and even fountains.

With the first day of summer upon us we thought we would share our top five Statue.com summer favorites.

1. )

Tiki Sculpted Table Set & Stools Bar Height

Summer is not complete without pool parties and BBQ’s. This Tiki Table and Stools would complete any party and be a great conversation piece. A definite summer time party necessity!

2.)

Reproduction of Louis Comfort Tiffany Summer Landscape

One of Tiffany’s favorite themes, the colors in this glass piece catches the essence of summer time.  His landscapes were one of his most beloved productions. This lovely freestanding Summer panel on wood stand would capture light beautifully in any sun-room. Statue.com is particularly proud of this reproduction which captures the subtle hues and luminous quality of the glass interpreted by Tiffany.

3.)

Drinking The Rain Toad Weather Gauge Statue

Summers in our neck-of-the-woods bring on fabulous thundershowers. We love this fun and functional toad sculpted by George Carruth  for our backyard to gauge just how much rain is falling from the sky.  It’s hard to hold back a smile when this little fellow has a mouthful of rain water. A perfect gift for gardeners or anyone else who enjoys keeping an eye on the weather. Display outdoors during the summer, or indoors as a candle holder in the winter.

4.)

Single Daisy Wall Plaque Sculpture

Daisies bring to mind wild open fields and the warmth of summer. Notice this sculpture has an inchworm, butterfly and ladybug to complete a summery meadow scene. The vertical shape of this plaque allows it to fit into any space. This would be a thoughtful gift for a gardener or anyone who enjoys nature.

5.)

Summer Solstice Wall Plaque Sculpture

The warmth of this Summer Solstice Wall Plaque Sculpture will radiate on any pool deck or shine on any garden. No summer would be complete without it! Larger than some of our other sun faces, this fellow really makes a statement, even from a distance. You can’t deny his sunny smile has a memorable charm!

The loss of a pet means the lost of a companion, a family member. Although they are gone to a better place, their memory remains. Memorializing their companionship with a personalized plaque will ensure their legacy lives on forever.
