This is a website that has some of the most unique Buddha statues that I’ve seen, ranging from handmade to factory-made ones, this site seems like it’s got something for everyone!

They do offer international shipping but it can take up to 3 weeks for orders from here to arrive due to the time it takes to make their products.
