Siddhartha for your Desktop Garden.

Siddhartha is ready to ship! This Little Siddhartha is about 3 inches tall and is built entirely out of the book "Siddhartha" by Hermann Hesse. He is posed in lotus position, expressing the teaching mudra hand symbol and looks serene sitting on your desk or bookshelf.

All of my sculptures are treated with a UV and moisture protectant, but they are indeed delicate objects.

Like what you see, but wish he were in a different pose, or an entirely different character and book? Message me and let's design something together!


Work commences upon payment and most sculptures can be completed within 3-4 weeks (often sooner!) depending on the individual orders. Holiday time frames will vary, according to my work load.

I will gladly refund payment for any sculpture that arrives damaged do to insufficient packaging.

These sculptures are all one-of-kind handmade works of art. They are delicate and will vary in shape and size. Some elements of the sculpture may seem flexible or able to be slightly manipulated, but this is not recommended. The text strips are easily ripped or damaged with manipulation. No refunds will be issued for damage incurred through manipulation.

Any custom work involves as much communication with the buyer as they desire, including status reports and photos of work progress. Because of this, I cannot offer refunds on custom work.
