Lord Buddha Meditation Altar Statue
Small but cute
I purchased this statue online for a small garden I have on the patio of my condo. While it was smaller than I anticipated, it's still a great fit for the patio. And though the faded red and gold makes it look aged, I think it gives the statue some distinction. The statue's made of resin. I wasn't familiar with that term at the time, so in case you're wondering, it's a plastic. I like that because it makes the statue very light and easy to carry anywhere. So you can easily take it back inside when the weather is acting up or to clean it.If you live in a place where it's very windy, I could see it being a problem. It might be too light and blow over. But where I'm placing it, it has pretty good protection from the wind and other elements. It's small enough to use as an inside decoration as well as an outdoor accent to any garden.
The candle that they provide is very small, and it wasn't red like in the picture. Instead it was white. As a whole it reached the halfway point of the cup it was stored in unlike in this picture where it seems to go all the way to the top. I don't consider that such a big deal, because candles are pretty cheap to buy, especially little candles. Overall, I'd say the statue is a pretty good deal for what it's worth.
As for delivery, the statue was shipped promptly and arrived on schedule. I like that they also provided me with a UPS tracking number so that I could track the package. The packaging materials they used for the statue kept it intact.
