M13615 - Garden Buddha Statue with Solar-Powered Flower and Base
I bought 2 and love them
I have two of these and love them both. I have not had any problem with either of them long term. One of them stops working every winter for about 3 months because she can't get enough light where she is. The other one actually fell and I had to glue her together and yet she still lights nightly.
Beautiful but no light!
I bought this little garden statue in February 21, 2008. I was very happy to receive it. Placed it in the roses bed, the light worked for about a week and then it never turned on again. I tried to clean it, take it apart, change the battery, etc. Nothing has worked. In some other reviews I read that cleaning has worked for some people. Should have returned it when I could.
A favorite purchase
I will try take a pix to add to this review as the pix here looks so flat and boring. Really a beautiful addition to a garden. I have it near a lilac bush and it's a serene little meditation garden. I always have a happy little moment in my day when I glimpse it. Love it.
I got mine about a month ago and suddenly the light is blinking very quickly. It looks nice that way too. It really adds to the serenity of my patio.
so calming, well worth the money
I'm catholic so I wish this company would make a Cross or Mother Mary that was as calming & beautiful as this statue, the soft glow on buddha face is so serrine & mine stay lite to the morning dawn, being in Ohio it even survied our spring snows, though I woun't push our winter since I love it so
Love it but...
I bought this about 6 weeks ago at the QVC outlet. It worked great up until a few days ago - no light. I took out the battery and recharged it thinking because of the cloudy days we'd had that that might have had something to do with it, especially not knowing the condition of the battery. Unfortunately it's still not lit...but I love it anyway.
I love this!
I really love the way this Buddha looks. Sometimes doesn't stay lit for very many hours, but it looks so good. Definitely happy with my purchase.
So Very Cute
This is just adorble. I nested in between some plants outside & didn't expect it to light up, as it was a bit shaded. It was beautiful even without the light. Then tonight I just thought I'd try the button & to my surprise it works!! It is so beautiful. Just absolutely love it.
Wonderful even after year!
It works year after year! Having bad reviews on this product ,I was sad because, mine stopped working,I thought it was a gonner except as a little garden stautue. Regardless your belief system, as Jill Bauer says, it is a lovely calming addition to any garden. In cleaning the terrace for Spring, I took this tiny Buddha and cleaned it up . Now, remember, solar panels do need to be cleaned almost every month, takes a sec, just like cleaning your glasses, So I wiped them down and put the figure back. Now, every night I am welcomed again by the warm glow of the lotus flower in the Buddha's hand and the lotus it that it sits on. it is a gem that warms my night (it is lovely in the day as well) and a true conversation piece. As an expression of compassion in the world, it lights up my life and my home and sends that message to every visitor every day.
Bad Q Purchase
Although I initially thought this was going to be a cute outdoor ornament, it turned out to be anything but ... The light did not last long at all, then when the wind blew it over the part where the light is broke. I am so glad I did not give this for a gift. It was in the trash about six weeks after receipt.
I LOVE MY BUDDHA!!!
I have had this buddha on my patio for over a year and it is still glowing every night! It is so nice to look out on my patio and see the soft glow. The lotus flower lights up the buddhas face as well as the lotus flower on the bottom beams. I bought another one so if something happens to mine now, I'll have a backup. I definatley reccomend if you are looking for a solar powered buddha that is a great price!!!
Beautiful indoors or outdoors
I purchased this for my Mother last year. She loves it and uses it both in her home and in her garden. It is easy to charge in the sun and the lotus glows with a soft, serene light in the evening. It is sturdy and easy to use. This is one of the best things I have purchased for her. I think I need one for my own garden:)
