BUDDHA, WEEPING, 8"SKU YOL329
Some carvers say the Weeping Buddha is absorbing all the sorrows of the world and that is why he weeps, while others maintain that he is merely meditating. All Weeping Buddhas are carved from Suar Wood, a non-endangered hard wood. The Weeping Buddha is a sampling of the inherent talent of Indonesian carvers.
The figure, often used as a proficiency test for young carvers, is a striking example of the human form.
