Jizo Bosatsu Child – The Preacher

Jizo Bosatsu Child – The Preacher

In Japan, among the most commonplace and much loved icons in Buddhist tradition is Jizō, or Ojizō-sama as he is more respectfully known.

Jizō is usually pictured as a small stone Buddhist monk statue with child-like features and traditionally carrying a staff and jewels. He is revered as the protector of children and travelers.

Jizō statues can often be found dressed in colorful bibs and clothing (usually red), a practice dating back centuries and thought to help to bring fertility, to protect children and to grant longevity.

Koi Bowl, stained concrete bird bath for outdoor garden or patio

Koi Bowl

The Koi is a member of the carp family of fish. Carp have long been kept and bred as pets in many civilizations. The ancient Romans kept them in ponds and fountains and bred the ancestors of today’s common Goldfish. In China, they are recognized as good luck symbols. The colorful Koi carp available today are the result of a strain first bred 160 years ago in Japan from a naturally occurring mutation. The word Koi actually translates to “carp” in Japanese. Inspired by Japanese tsukubai (a hand-washing bowl used in tea ceremonies), this Koi bowl will allow you to keep Koi, without having to worry about pesky predators.

Large Buddha

Buddha (563?- 483?BC), Indian philosopher and the founder of Buddhism, born in Kapilavastu, India, just inside present-day Nepal. His name Gautama Buddha is a combination of the family name Gautama and the appellation Buddha, meaning “Enlightened One.”  One day in 533, according to tradition, he encountered an aged man, a sick man, and a corpse, and he suddenly realized that suffering is the common lot of humankind. He then came upon a mendicant monk, calm and serene, whereupon he determined to adopt his way of life and forsake family, wealth, and power in the quest for truth. Accompanied by disciples, Buddha traveled through the valley of the Ganges River, teaching his doctrines, gathering followers, and establishing monastic communities that admitted anyone regardless of caste. Buddha’s teachings have influenced the lives of millions of people for nearly 2500 years.

Large Rodin's the Thinker garden ornament

Large Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’

The original ‘Thinker’ was sculpted by the great French artist Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) and was first exhibited in Paris in 1904. Since then, this image of a powerful man in contemplation has become a symbol of Rodin himself. While he admired many famous artists, his strongest influences came from viewing the works of Michelangelo during a trip to Italy in 1875

Maternal Dragon

The dragon, a fabulous monster common to many mythologies, was usually conceived as a huge, bat-winged, fire-breathing creature with a barbed tail. The word dragon is derived from the Greek drakon, which was used originally for any large serpent. With the advent of Christianity, dragons came to be symbolic of sin and paganism and the slaying of a dragon was the crowning achievement of the heroes of the ancients. However, our beautifully detailed sculpture by Travis Bond remains a beneficent creature, capturing the bond between mother and child, and eschews the traditional view of the dragon as an agent of evil.

Medium Benedict Gargoyle medieval concrete statue for garden

Medium Benedict Gargoyle

On a pilgrimage to Paris, Benedict fell in love with a young woman. Whilst very beautiful on the outside, she was cold and cruel on the inside. She quickly grew bored with Benedict’s attentions and devised a scheme to rid herself of him. One day she demanded that he perform three tasks to prove his love for her: If successful, she would agree to be married. First, she wanted him to fly her up to the castle tower.  Benedict went to the sorcerer and asked for a potion to make him grow wings and then, as requested, flew her to the top of the tower. The young woman admired the gargoyles surrounding the tower and wished that Benedict would look as handsome as they. Again, blinded by his love, Benedict took a potion and was transformed into a horned gargoyle. For his final task, she demanded that he sit not eating, sleeping or speaking until her return and then they would be wed. The wicked woman never returned and after many long years, Benedict turned to stone. Today he watches over the young lovers of Paris whilst awaiting the return of his love.

Medium Green Man face statue, ornament for the garden

Medium Greenman Face

In this ‘original’ Greenman design, master sculptor Klaus Kinast has captured the classic medieval image derived from Cernunnos (the Celtic god of the Forest) and Dionysus (the Greek god of wine). The Greenman was popular in architecture of this period, usually characterized by a male face interwoven with vines, leaves and other foliage. It is found in many cultures and is believed to symbolize the rebirth of the growing cycle each spring. Perhaps this Greenman will help with your garden’s success.

Medium Mongolian Buddha

This Buddha sculpture is a reproduction of the statue from the Heicheng archaeological site in Inner Mongolia. This relic dates back to the Xia State (1032-1226). Images of the Buddha were venerated as reminders of the life and virtues of the great teacher, and all representations have certain physical signs of perfection; elongated ears, and a top knot of hair which covers the second brain grown by the Buddha to contain his enlightenment. The hands are in the traditional meditation position.

Medium Rapa nui, stained concrete Easter Island statue for outdoor garden or patio

Medium Rapa Nui

Rapa Nui or Easter Island Megalith

Located over 3500 km (2700 miles) off the coast of Chile, Easter Island boasts the world’s largest collection of megaliths. These giant statues range in height from 3 to 10m (10 – 33 feet) and were constructed over 18 centuries ago. All of the statues face westward and their significance is still a subject of debate. Some say they represent lost kings, and that one was constructed for every king. Others say they are to scare away invaders. They were carved from volcanic rock from Rano Raraku. The real mystery is how they were transported to where they now stand. Weighing as much as 27 metric tons (50,000lbs), the mystery is as great as the construction of the pyramids.
