"Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it."

Our Buddha Face wood wall carvings and statues are mostly made from Rain tree hardwood . It is a fast growing tree common in most tropical areas and resembles Mahogany with its red/brown and cream coloured grain. The structure of this grain enhances its capability not to crack in dryer climates and it has high weather resistant properties.

The Michelangelo challenge for our wood carvers at The Buddha's Face the challenge is to find the serene and contemplative Buddha image within - as the noted Thai wood carver Khun Khorn Wasinwong says "Buddha images should show compassion and wisdom ".

So the challenge when making Buddha images is considerable. Our new stock has arrived after a six month delay whilst our family of Fair Trade carvers began work on our largest order to date. It is always a moment of trepidation when you open the container in the UK and see for the first time the quality and condition of what we had ordered so long ago.

We are delighted to say though these are our best Buddhas to date - confident carving on excellent quality sustainably forested rain tree hard wood which has brought out remarkable features and details in our range of Buddha statues,wall art panels and other Buddha images.

The example displayed above is a 70cm by 40cm Dark Brown waxed coating Thai style Buddha statue suitable for both your home and garden. Please visit our merchant website The Buddha's Face and register for our free email newsletter where we can keep you informed about progress in getting the whole of our new stock on online and details of special promotions we are going to be running over the next few months .

"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful."
The Buddha
