Product Description

SMALL GOLD LUSTER BUDDHA SCULPTURE LALIQUE :

SMALL GOLD LUSTER BUDDHA SCULPTURE LALIQUE, More than 2500 years ago, Buddha, the enlightened one, was born on the border of Nepal and Bihar. Endowed with infinite spiritual strength and a universal kindness, Buddha became aware that there is a compromise between the vain pleasures of life and bitter renunciation.

He developed the philosophy of Buddhism based on the four noble truths related to the universality of suffering, its origins, its annihilation and the spiritual way to reach that point.

Made of re polished crystal with a satin finish, the Buddha features generous curves and a kind smile. The beauty of the design is enhanced by the artisan's manual work of crystal.


♦ LALIQUE :

One hundred and twenty workers - blowers, sculptors and engravers - are directly involved in making Lalique pieces. Whether  they do hot glass and cold glass work, "all of our workers show manual skill, a degree of artistic sensitivity and a passion for their job without which nothing great could be achieved," observes Denis Mandry, Director of the factory. It's not only a matter of technical virtuosity, because "the ultimate purpose of this facility and our personnel is to express the dreams and the emotion that the creator had in mind".

Most of the workers got their vocational training in a work-study program at one of France's two remaining schools (one is in Sarrebourg in Moselle, and the other in Moulins in L'Atelier). After learning the basics in the classroom, they need several more years on the job before they master their craft. In cold glass and hot glass workshops alike, it takes about ten years to train a good glassblower, sculptor or cute-en-graver. Nothing a shortfall in the number of artisans completing vocational training for the third year in a row, Lalique set up its own training centre in cooperation with the national employment office and a regional job centre.

Eric Harter and Matthieu Muller both won MOF status last year. They competed in the same category (sculpture-engraving) and presented the same piece. Carved from a 40 kg block of crystal, the figure that earned them the title, which represents a fox, is impressive for its realism, strength and beauty.
