A message from Kyle, Founder of Lotus Sculpture: Ever since I first met the artists of the Bronze Creative (South India) 8 years ago they have spoke of making the largest Nataraja ever cast. It is wonderful for me to see them realize their dreams and ambitions. Each year of visiting India I have seen their work get better and better. The beauty, power and delicate nature of each Hindu God is evident in each murti they create in bronze. They truly bring each Hindu God to life. To see this amazing wax model of Nataraja is a testiment to their dedication to their art work and to the beauty of Shiva!

“I’ve always had great admiration for His Holiness and his non-violent approach
to the plight of the Tibetan people. When I was approached with the opportunity
to work with this beautiful image as a sanctioned source and create a work that evokes
the Dalai Lama’s presence as I feel it, I was thrilled. I hope His Holiness remains
a presence of compassion in the world for many birthdays to come!”
