The Best Indian Statues Of Hindu Gods For Home And Garden
1. 25 Inch Ganesh For Home ($$$$)
This 25-inch Hindu statue of Ganesh is just beautiful. It is, in my opinion, the best Ganesh sculpture to buy online. At the time of writing this, it has a full five stars from 22 reviews, so you know the manufacturer is trustworthy, and the product is top-notch.
This is a bronze Ganesh statue hand-painted delicately to represent the Remover of Obstacles. Spiritually speaking, the purpose of this one is to help you eliminate obstacles in your life. So if you are currently struggling with a particular challenge, you might like to consider this figurine.
2. Shiva In Padmasana Lotus Pose ($$)
This sculpture of Shiva as “Lord of the Dance” represents both Shiva the destroyer and Shiva the re-creator. The statue represents the end of the cycle of life and death and the dawning of a new cycle. It constitutes the end of ignorance and the full acceptance of belief. It is a representation of the story in which Shiva converted 10,000 non-believers.
3. Krishna Murti ($$$)
This is a hand-crafted Krisha murti made of solid brass. What makes this one of the best Hindu statues to buy is the sheer amount of details that has gone in it. It looks gorgeous. And to add to the authenticity, it is imported from India. Overall, this is a lovely decorative piece for your home that will be proud to show friends and family.
This Krisha murti shows Krishna playing his flute, which is an incredibly symbolic representation of Krishna. To learn more about this, you might like to read YogaMag’s explanation about Krishna’s flute.
4. Vishnu for home (8 inch by PTC)
This is a simple little Vishnu statue for home or office. It is made of a vinyl style material.
What I like about this statue of Vishnu is that it has brilliant, vibrant colours and incredible attention to detail. For the price, it is a magnificent Hindu statue that will look great in the office or at home.
I find that this one brightens up the room. It is so colourful and vibrant. If you are looking for a bit more positivity and brightness in your home, this is an excellent choice.
5. Large Hanuman
If you’re looking to buy the best Hanuman statue, then this is it. At 25 inches this is a colossal statue of Hanuman that will work as a focal point in your home. It is beautiful, with excellent attention to detail.
The artistry is sublime. You can tell the amount of love that has been put into this one. The details are incredible, and it looks a lot more valuable than the price tag.
How to choose
When it comes to choosing the best Hindu statue to buy, consider these points.
1. What should your Hindu statue represent?
Do you want your Hindu statue to represent a positive emotion or quality, such as hope or gratitude? If so, you want to feel that way when you look at the bust. If you’re looking for something that injects some positivity into your space, choose one with bright colours like the Vishnu one above. Or if you want something that is going to be more peaceful and help you feel calm, select one with muted colours that you can put on your meditation altar.
2. What message should the sculpture have?
Spiritual statues often have specific messages inscribed on them. If it is a Hindu statue, the message may be a mantra.
The message on your religious figure must be meaningful to you. Do the words on the statue resonate with you? Do they make you feel good? Do they connect you to the divine?
If the sculpture has a mantra, make sure you read it an understand its meaning. You might also like to get one with a mantra that you actually want to recite, and then put it in your meditation altar so it’s there with you while you practice japa!
3. Make sure it works with your home décor
Thousands of people have read The Daily Meditation’s guide to creating a Zen room.
In it, I discuss everything from design to colour choices. You should consider the same points when buying a Hindu statue.
When you’re buying a Hindu statue, you’re often thinking about meaning, spirituality, and, you know, deep things. It can be easy to overlook this fact: You spiritual statue has to look good in your home!
What room is it going in? What colours are in that room? Do you have an accent colour? If so, get a spiritual statue that’s in the same accent colour.
4? How much should it cost to buy?
Are you buying a cheap Hindu statue or an expensive one? Either way, there are some things to bear in mind.
Firstly, if it’s a cheap Hindu statue, just make sure the manufacturer is trustworthy. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a spiritual statue that falls to piece (and that’s just not good karma!)
If it’s an expensive one, bear in mind that some unscrupulous manufacturers sell so-called antique spiritual statues that are not antique at all—they’re just designed to look old. Knowing a fake from a genuine antique statue is not easy. But this guide on fake antiques makes for an interesting read.
There is so much choice in Hindu statues these days. Whether you’re looking for a small one for your office, a large one for the lounge, or a big and bulky garden statue, there are just so many to choose from!
