What Buddha Quote Inspires You?

What  Buddha Quote Inspires You?

Buddhism is a philosophy, a moral code, and, for some a religious faith which originated 2,500 years ago in India. It offers a diagnosis of the suffering of mankind and provides a formula for individuals to resolve that suffering. It offers a moral code based on compassion and non-violence. Through  meditation Buddhism offers a way to achieve spiritual insight and provides a path to reach a deeper understanding of the nature of reality. Directing inwards, Buddhism offers a practical way to connect with everyday life and with others.

Though the Buddha himself wrote nothing his teaching was communicated entirely orally and the details we have today are from the writings many years after his death. One saying of Buddha that resonates with me is, ‘The mind is everything. What you think you become.’ This statement to me is infinite and beautiful.

Tell us your inspiring saying by Buddha. Use any amount of words. All responses will be thoughtful, I am sure, however, the  most thoughtful response will receive a terracotta image of Buddha like the one pictured below free. Please send your thoughts via the field below by August 31st and please,  don’t forget your contact information The most thoughtful response will be announced that week.

Terracotta Buddha is 12″h x 7″sq and has infinite value!

The Rams Head Fountain in Travertine Marble

Posted by on Jun 4th, 2017 in Blog, Odds and Ends | 0 comments

The Rams Head Fountain in Travertine Marble

One of my favorite travertine fountains is The Rams Head.

The animal symbolism of the ram speaks of: Power, Force, Drive, Energy, Virility, Protection, Fearlessness.
A look into mythology will reveal the ram was associated with many gods over time. All admirable traits for a god amongst the people!

The Celtic god Cernunnus is shown with the ram. Some depictions show him seated with a ram-headed snake by his side a symbolic gesture of renewal and power.

In ancient Egypt the god Amun-Ra took on the persona of Khnum, the creator god who was always depicted with a ram’s head.

In Scandinavia, Thor was close with the ram, and was fabled to use rams to pull his chariot.
Other gods connected to the strong-willed ram are:

  • Zeus (Greece)
  • Apollo (Greece)
  • Agni (India)
  • Indra (India)
  • Hermes (Roman)
  • Ea (Middle East)
  • Baal (Middle East)

Posing strong and daunting the travertine stone marble Rams Head fountain (shown above)  currently adorns a beautiful Tuscan garden at The Vineyard Inn. He majestically stands 3’H x 2’L x 1’D and is one of two in our inventory. How mighty a pair would make in the right landscape setting! Like what you see? Click here for more.

Belvedere Project

Posted by on Dec 11th, 2012 in Portfolio | 0 comments

Belvedere Project

Belvedere Project

The Mandarich Development Corporation CEO traveled to Vienna and was inspired by the Belvedere Gardens and Viennese architecture. His dream was to re-create a Viennese feeling as a theme for one of his developments and thus the Belvedere project came into being in Vallejo, California.
Sonoma Garden Living was commissioned to reproduce such objects commensurate to those observed in Vienna, Austria. One of the most prominent items was a statue of Johann S. Strauss. The experts from Sonoma Garden Living oversaw every step of the creation of all statues constantly consulting with the stone cutters and artisans thus ensuring quality workmanship.

Belvedere Completed

Two years later, from the CEO’s dream to reality, Sonoma Garden Living created these exquisite marble statues, 10 in all, along with other marble sculpt for the interior of the project. All were completed on time and within budget. And all won critical acclaim from our client, Mandarich Development Corporation.
