Buddha in the Roots


Jenny said...

Did you take a photo of the Buddha Ken? Any idea why the Buddha was placed there? ie: was it in a significant area? Sorry, just curious.

Oh, and great sketches {as usual}.

I did take a picture. This was in a temple compound that was looted many years ago. Many of the Buddha statues had been decapitated so I imagine someone placed it there many years ago and the roots just grew around it. Coincidentally or not, history tells us that the Buddha attained enlightenment under the Bodhi tree (these are the roots of the Bodhi tree) - cool, huh?
