Buddha in Wholesome Karmic Clay


Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum

Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum
Kaohsiung, Taiwan

This statue is made of pottery clay and the ashes of monks. This Buddha image has a nimbus and sits upright under a canopy and on a lotus. The Buddha has a solemn appearance, wide shoulders and thin waist. Flanking the Buddha are Bodhisattvas standing gracefully on lotus stands in tribhanga postures, holding a pearl in one hand and a bottle of purified water in another. The seven Buddha images above the central Buddha figure should be the Seven Buddhas of the Past.
