Garden of Buddha

"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment" - Buddha

Michael Gentilucci's impressive Buddha effigy is hand-sculpted in solid concrete and can serve as a heady reminder to live in the now, whether you're tending your garden, or stepping back to admire it from afar. This regal Buddha likeness has a hollow crown that can hold, support, and embellish all manner of greenery, from delicate flowers and ferns, to hearty cacti. The weatherproof sealed cement is plumbed for drainage and ensures that this magnificent Zen master will outlive even the perennials. Place this pensive planter in your yard or garden to bring tranquility and positive energy to greenspaces, or prop him on your porch or patio to greet guests with a smile as they enter your home.

Michael Gentilucci

Michael Gentilucci and his wife Alisa share a common passion for traditional garden design. Soon after they met, they created Designer Stone. Since 2004, Michael has created hundreds of original copyrighted clay sculptures. His designs have a spiritual reverberating quality; they are typically amusing, expressive, inspirational, and interactive. They commonly possess a message, often written, sometimes implied, and occasionally profound. It is the type of Garden Art which evokes a glimmering smile, it can remove life's pressures for a few precious moments and can remind us of who we are and what we live for. collection

    Comments about BUDDHA HEAD PLANTER:

    I basically use it in my living room as I had a perfect spot for it in mind. That said, when the description said "Container is plumbed for direct planting", I didn't realize that meant a hole in the inside base of the head to the base of the sculpture.

    I ended up buying a plastic 8 inch saucer for the interior so I could still water the plant without leaking all over my living room. In any case, the artist did a great job with this piece and I didn't have to choose between a plant versus a sculpture for this corner of my living room.
