Sculpture, NO RESERVE PRICE - Antiqued Thai Buddha on Stand - 27 cm - Bronze
Serenity and self-reflection are welcomed into your home with our Antiqued Thai Bronze Buddha on Stand. Each detail is carefully carved into the cast and full of meaning, from the third eye’s symbolism of spiritual awakening to the downcast eyes that look beyond the material and towards inner truth.
Our bronze sculptures are made from upcycled metals such as old pipelines. Our craftsmen and women collect this scrap waste which they then put in an oven at very high temperatures. Once the scrap waste pieces melt, the new raw material is ready to be used. We then use this virgin material to make our bronze sculptures. As bronze is a very eco and labour-intensive material to mine, we feel it makes much more sense to reuse the material that has already been created than to extract it – again. By doing so we are trying to close at least one waste loop.
TRANSPARENCY & WHO MADE IT
Lastly, when it comes to our working conditions, we work exclusively with Indonesian craftsmen and women in both Bali and Java. This piece specifically was made in Java, Indonesia. All of our craftsmen and women get paid a living wage that exceeds what Indonesian Law requires. Their income is enough for a comfortable home, food, education, ceremonies, and more.
