Sandstone cast Buddha with tea light holder

A mixture of sand, cement and water is poured into a cast. When set it is removed from the cast and left in the Bali sun to dry before being painted.

Gold coloured

For indoors or outdoors. If left outdoors, this cast sandstone Buddha will slowly lose its brightness, probably growing a rich living patina of moss and lichen.

Size 32cm

Religious symbols and statues are a key part of everyday life in Bali. In every single road there must be a shrine made from stone for worship. Stone work is important to the Balinese people and we think ours are some of the most beautiful they make. These items are hand cast in moulds created by our artisans. They use local sand and cement and use the heat of the hot Balinese sun to dry them out.

Buying this item helps to keep the husband wife team who make them with steady work. Having a secure income means they can support their young family and give them a stable home. We’re proud to support single family producers where money earned helps to give their children a better life.
