The base is surrounded with beautiful images of praying Arhats worshipping at a stupa with relics of The Buddha. Buddha’s face is particularly beautiful and peaceful, a true image of Enlightenment. Other images of The Buddha’s life surround the bronze base, including: His enlightenment under the Bodhi tree, the temptations of Mara, and on each end, the Wheel of the Dharma with the deer of Deerpark. The Bhudda’s head reclines peacefully on a lotus flower. Length 15 1/2 inches. Very old bronze in magnificent condition.
