I live in Thailand. I recently went to a temple where they charge only the foreigners an admission... and i was told i was disrespectful for smelling the flowers next to a buddha figure... I am quite certain buddha would not have minded me smelling the flowers, and i am feeling the same about buddha in the bathroom...buddhism is everywhere...that's my take on it...and it looks beautiful by the way

Heehee to the irony of telling someone to "judge less"! And the greatest commandment is "Love one another" : ) As for you Buhdda, the great I am who exists in the plural is but one - the ultimate reality.

Why does this have to be turned into something for or against God? I love Budda statues yet I believe in God. I can enjoy them as a piece of art and I think this statue is beautiful. Whether or not to put it in the bathroom is for the individual to decide.

It looks like travertine. In saying that, the lighting is very warm and it could definitely be a number of different natural stones.

In any case, travertine would look very similar to this.

I hope this helps.

The bathroom is beautiful, skillfully executed and quite unique. However I would never condone a Buddha in a bathroom. Especially a Mahayana.

I have a very small home, my Buddha when I had a bigger home had the grand place in my living room. It looked more like a decoration there. It is now by where I wash my hands, cleanse my body and try to remember to be the best person I can be on a daily basis. Christopher Sullivan is correct. Enlightenment does not come by judging. Neither does it make you a will want to make a special place where the statue may be treated with respect.
Do not put your Buddha statue where someone’s feet will be pointing toward the statue. While pointing with your finger at a monk or Buddha image is bad enough, pointing with your feet would be even more offensive.
Keep the area free of objects that might tower above the image. Do not place your statue near refrigerators or other items that are much larger or much taller.
Refrain from placing your statue or any other Buddhist related symbol in the bathroom, or any room where acts of passion might take place (I think you know what I mean). (This is what makes it bad folks-Angie's comment here)
Position the statue so that it will not hang under laundry lines, as you want to make sure that things such as undergarments and socks will not hover above the statue.
The main rule for placing a Buddha properly is to give him a lofty perch, such as a mantle, raised platform or tall shelving unit.
Give him a place of honor in your personal altar. Buddha can be the main focus of your own shrine, surrounded by smaller, meaningful objects like a crow’s feather, sacred candles and your lucky penny.
Keep out evil spirits by putting Buddha in your home’s front room facing the front door. Anyone who enters will immediately note Buddha checking him out and will flee if they are filled with evil.
Have your whole house swirling with positive Buddha energy by giving him a throne in the middle of your home. Any central area will do, as long as he’s properly honored and not obstructing any pathways, which will block the flow of energy.
(Mine is facing the door above everything else, my room is clean and it might be the reason why I have found extra peace from strife and pain)

bulletin: that is not the real Buddha - it's only a carving or a piece of cast stone. acts of passion? in the wc? the act of elimination is not very arousing to me, but i suppose there is room in this world for all kinds of stimulation. in any case, my sincere thanks to all the commenters here! i've bookmarked this thread to send to my friends whenever they try to convince me that organized religion is a good idea. oh, and whenever i get the chance, i point my feet at any monks i can find. it's quite liberating, like spending a lucky penny.

I live in Chicago - any idea where I could get something like this? I purchased some beautiful things from a store in palm springs called "hello bali" but the store closed and I haven't been able to find the owner. He brought beautiful things from Bali.

This was tough to find, but I believe they are made by Ironware International.
The web site is only available to registered designers (which I am not) and are available "to the trade only". Here are 2 sites I found:

You could achieve the same look by buying carved out panels from Pier 1 Imports or World Market and then paint them a light color. I like them too!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

ds design studio added this to 9 Elements of Asian Style
2. Altar-like alcoves. Traditional Japanese style rooms feature a tokonoma, an alcove to display special art on scrolls and flower arrangements. This alcove, possibly inspired by such a niche, actually contains a window and the carved floral art looks like shutters.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Go Big With Sculpture at Home
There is something spa-like about a space that features a big natural element made of wood or reminiscent of stone. Light paint and a large harmonious sculpture turns this room into a retreat.
