Dharma Sculpture packs each sculpture with care, and ships each package with full insurance

Tracking Numbers

After your order has been picked up by either UPS or ABF shipping, we will email you the UPS or ABF tracking number in order for you to track your shipment's journey to your home.


We take the utmost care in shipping and packing each sculpture. It is very important to us that each sculpture arrives whole and undamaged.  We use double-thick, corrugated cardboard boxes for all UPS deliveries.  For all freight deliveries, a wooden crate is built to fit that individual sculpture's dimensions.  Each piece is packed in one layer of packing material then wrapped with extra thick bubble wrap.  The sculpture is then packed with a layer of packing material with at least four inches of thickness between your bubble wrapped sculpture and the corrugated box or wood crate. 

Handling and packaging are included in the shipping price for both UPS and Freight delivery charges.

Pick up

If you would like to pick up your order please select the Pick Up option in the drop down menu in the shipping section of the checkout.  A Dharma Sculpture representative will contact you after you have purchased your item to arrange a pick up date and time.


We take the utmost care to insure that a sculpture is not damaged in shipping by packing each piece with care.  However, no matter how perfectly a sculpture is packed, the journey from our store to your home is out of our hands.  If a sculpture has been damaged in shipping please notify Dharma sculpture within 48 hours so that the proper insurance measures can be taken.  Be sure to keep all of the packing materials which will be needed for inspection by the shipping company.   Again, we take the utmost care to insure that any damage  does not happen in the first place.  In the event of a piece arriving damaged Dharma Sculpture will pay for the return shipping and you will not be charged any service charges.
